“Nice place, good value.”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

Older, park at your door, 1 story motel run by nice retired couple who live onsite. Clean rooms, only had 2 with queen beds that was booked so had to take room with 2 double bed. Sits on top of a hill overlooking the highway with a nice wrap-around porch and views of Barkley Lake. We decided to find a liquor store, order pizza for dinner and watch beautiful sunset. Wish I could give it a 5 rating but outside needs a little TLC, brushing the cobwebs of the front porch and lights, tiding up the entrance to office (kind of clutter you find at your grandparents house). We will stay there again when in the Dover area.

One night at this property overlooking the road to Dover TN. As I dont stay at motels too often I was pleasantly surprised, the room was large and in good shape. Everything worked and there was even a nice sitting area outside through sliding glass doors to a patio with some chairs.
Dont expect much modernity, but there was wifi and a color tv with a decent cable lineup. Dorm size fridge was a nice touch. For the price paid, and the reasonable quality, I would stay again if in the area.

Reviewed 15 December 2011

This is a lovely and quiet motor inn that looks out over the Cumberland River. It is run by a lovely husband and wife who live on site. They are very kind and your room is always kept up. I stayed here for my mother's funeral and never wanted for a thing. (Right down to the owner loaning one of the minister's a tie.) The hotel is situated between Dover and Clarksville. The rooms have little binders with ALL of the local cafes. We had four people in the room and it only cost 60. If you want comfort and quality along with hosts who care and live there too . . . this is the little place to stay.

Room Tip: all the rooms are one level.
