Came into Norwood after a full fun day around Lone Cone Mountain & Lake Miramonte not expecting many overnight options. What we did find is this beautiful little motor court richly appointed in update-to-warm date finishes & furnishings. This king size bed is the kind you would find in a very upscale hotel. I regret I didn't take photos before...

A group of 9 of us stopped here on way home from Sturgis. We weren't expecting too much just a place to sleep for the night, but were we ever surprised! Our trip included 16 nights in hotel between Houston and Sturgis mostly the chains and not one single place came close to the accommodations, price and customer service we...

Rarely do you come in to a town this size and find such a nice place. Rooms are small, but very nicely appointed. The property itself is clean and well maintained. I get tired of seeing that rooms are clean in reviews; They are supposed to be! I like the fact that whoever owns this place takes pride in the...

Good clean rooms, great location, helpful associates. We were there 2 nights. Overall a very clean pleasant facility. There was minimal staff presence which is good unless there is a problem. Minor inconveniences were, non operational fan in bathroom, very slow drain in sink (room 2), and extended wait for HOt water in shower.

This inn offers a choice of camping in their back yard for a very reasonable rate. After several days of motorcycle travel, it was nice to have a clean bathroom with hot shower and placed to plug in battery chargers. Best part was being able to walk a few blocks into town for food. Good grocery store and cafes. I...

I had to travel to Norwood for work recently and I was definitely a little nervous about where I would have to stay in such a small town. I was pleasantly surprised. The room was small but it was clean and nice. The bathroom was a little small but there was a refrigerator and a microwave which was a nice...

Norwood is small. The BackCountry Inn is not a bad place for a single night - as long as you have quiet neighbors. Walls are VERY thin. You will hear all sounds in adjacent rooms. Wifi VERY unreliable - couldn't use it several days - slow and couldn't even log in. Nice, cozy room. No table at all. No shampoo...

We stopped here on our way south as there isn't much accommodation in this area. Backcountry Inn seemed to be the best choice. It looks like an old motel that has been re-faced and updated. It looks very nice from the outside, but the rooms are really small. Our room had a very nice fridge and microwave, but no table...
