The room is nice and cozy. The reception staffs were friendly and helpful. However the bed and the sheets were not very comfortable, just my own opinion. The shower was terrible, it looks like no one have used it for hundreds years, the water came out smelly and disgusting. We were unable to take shower. Luckily we only stayed there...

I picked this hotel because it's centrally located to all the attractions we wanted to see. There are B&B's nearby but when traveling with a toddler this place made more sense and not to mention the price was a great deal. I have to say that the manager at the front desk was tremendously friendly more like an old friend...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the motel the other night as a stop over between San Francisco and Yosemite and were very impressed! Jamestown itself is also a very sweet little town. We arrived late and checked in with no problems. The gentlemen on the checkout was very pleasant and advised us where to get food late at night,...

The staff was very friendly! We arrived late at night and without a reservation, and the front desk person was very helpful in helping us get a room for the evening. The rooms were very clean and quiet. We would definitely stay here again!

We booked this motel at short notice due to a last minute change of plans. It looks a little tired but was clean and comfortable and the staff were very helpful. Couldn't fault it really. There was no breakfast but coffee was available in the lobby.
