Medina, Ohio
Reviewed 17 August 2016

We love the Mom & Pop lodges. They were motorcycle friendly and very personable. The room was clean and comfortable. They also gave excellent recommendations on where to eat. The next time we are in the area, we will stay there.

Thanks for the review and lodging with us at Hidden Valley. It is an advantage of being tiny that those with a special vehicle can usually park outside of their room where they can keep an eye on the vehicle. I enjoy all of our guests, fun to get to meet folks. Jim

My parents were staying over night and I had called to see if I could book a room as I was surprising them. The owner Jim had told me that he would place me on a list if any one cancelled. He also gave me several recommendations for other places around the area to stay. He took the time to...

Although Hidden Valley appears to be a bit dated on the exterior, the interior appears to have been recently remodeled. Everything was fresh and clean - very comfortable bedding and pillows. Even hide wi-fi! Very homey feeling and quaint. The lady that checked us in was very friendly and it felt very much a throwback to the pre-corporate style chain...

Thank you for your review, the lady checking you in would have been Maxine (by my side since high school), mostly just the two of us over the years and slowly our daughter Michelle and husband Duran are becoming involved in the business. We enjoy the business and hope you felt like you were visiting with friends and family. I'm...

My wife and I stayed here for a midweek getaway to Boone. It is not a 5 star luxurious hotel in the middle of a big city, which is perfect! It's a small, mom and pop run gem right outside of Boone. The prices are way better than the run of the mill chain hotels. We appreciated the service we...

Thanks folks for your nice review, we appreciate it, hope your mountain visit and your event were memorable. We don't claim to be fancy, just mom and pop and love this business and our guests, but our goal is that guests find us clean, cute and comfortable and a nice spot to relax.

My husband and I decided to take a last minute getaway this 4th of July weekend, he found this hotel online and called to book us a room. When we finally got there after driving the Blue Ridge Parkway all day Sunday, we were pleasantly surprised with our room, #2. The room was clean and fresh and the owners were...

We checked in Friday afternoon 5/13/16, and when we opened the door to Room # 7, it had a musty odor. The bathroom wallpaper corners were peeling, and looked damp and mildew.. But since this was Appalachian State U graduation weekend, we figured we were stuck here, but figured only for one night. Got back to the room late Friday...

I’m sorry you did not enjoy your visit and I appreciate the review, but may I add a few details? Room # 7 has not been a problem, a recent reservation specifically requested # 7 based on their last stay in the room, but the bath, yes, while clean and functional, the colors were out of style and the wallpaper...

The motel has a beautiful, well-kept garden; the room was nicely furnished and perfectly clean. The owners were friendly and helpful about places to visit in the area. The rates were excellent and we would definitely stay there again.

Thank you, we appreciate your review. Maxine is the gardener and spends much of her time tending the flowers during the warmer seasons, glad you enjoyed the garden. We enjoy all of our guests and appreciate your having stayed with us.

Toms River, New Jersey
Reviewed 18 April 2016

Although this review is way overdue, it's still timely in its accuracy. The kind of small, family-owned, old-school motel you dream about. Quaint isn't even accurate. Delightful, charming, clean, clean, clean, friendly still don't come close. Our larger-than-average room had two doubles and a single bed (all very comfortable), a couch, a comfy side chair, tv, shower/tub full bath, micro/fridge,...

Very Clean, nicely appointed rooms with lots of character; show pride of ownership. Quiet beautiful setting, just off the main road. Owners very helpful in area highlights. Great Value, would love to return for a little longer stay!

Thank you for your stay and your review. Long ago we were visitors to the area ourselves before moving here to stay, we enjoy sharing the area with our visitors.

Reviewed 12 November 2015

Small Mom & Pop place. Well decorated, very clean. Reasonably priced, and owners are full of knowledge, and tips about the area. Very friendly old southern couple, who are happy to have guests. Place is quiet, well furnished, and so forth. Like staying in someone's guest room, which in a way is exactly what it is. Highly recommended. No disappointments.
