hungryRNfortravel, Firstly, thank you for staying with us and we appreciate the feedback. We are always looking for areas to improve. For the past 3 years, we have been making lots of improvements to the rooms, including new heaters, new air-conditioning, new TVs and high speed internet as well as new beds and bedding, towels and carpet. We pride ourselves on having very clean rooms, but it appears we did not hold up to our own standards for your particular room. I am deeply sorry for any inconveniences you experienced. We will be addressing the notes you left in your review and working with staff to make sure all rooms are in top condition. Again, I am sorry for not meeting our mutual standards for your stay. Please reach out directly as we would be happy to compensate for the issues you encountered.

My husband and I spent two nights here between Christmas and New Years and had a great stay. The room had a cozy cabin feeling, which we loved. The motel is also conveniently located to the Pearl Street shopping district, but yet located in quiet area on the edge of the city.

Room 1: Small but adequate for two people. Staff is friendly and caring-available, if needed. Heat kept up with the -3 degrees we had outside! Plenty of blankets and pillows, drawer space, a comfy couch, enough light to read by, a tv that had HBO (for us, a treat). The red

I booked online and they confirmed the reservation via phone. Friendly and helpful staff. Very cozy clean room with small fridge, good heating, and everything you would expect in a motel room. We took less than five minutes to drive downtown for easy access to several coffee
