Well..they allowed our dog for a $50 cash deposit and $12 cash pet fee...the room rate was allowed on the credit card. We were instructed the dog was not allowed on the bed or on the furniture and the room would be checked for damage prior to refunding our cash deposit. The owners were very nice though. Room very dated...

We stayed here 3 nights well we attended a near by music festival, rooms were scarce, so we payed a premium price for what I'm sure is normally a very reasonable room. As others stated the rooms are very outdated and in need of refurbishing, but they are clean, safe, in a decent location, and reasonable. Just remember, you get...

We were in town for a couple shows at Alpine Valley. The motel isn't fancy and that's just fine with us! It was clean and the owners were awesome! They were very friendly! Om shuttled us to and from both shows. It's pricey but from what I've heard it's like that everywhere during concert season. He was right there waiting...

In very poor condition that is overcharged for a tiny room, with a messy carpet that has not been cleaned this century. The Wi-Fi is a joke. Does not work on whims. Front desk cannot correct this. Small bath towels. Noisy wall AC/heating unit. You can do a lot better with the worst managed chain hotels. Stay away from this...

Booked a room here to take my daughter fishing nearby. We had to cancel the fishing trip due to the weather and the hotel refused to allow me to use the prepaid fee for another night. It was too late based on their cancellation policy but I was very disappointed that they wouldn't apply the funds to another night. A...

This place is a mess! First of all, we checked in a little later (930 p.m) as we were staying while our furnace was being fixed, (no heat for 48 hrs. until parts came and furnace fixed.) The gentleman at the desk was rude and obviously upset, as he said we interrupted his t.v. time. The room smelled awful when...

We stayed here for work reasons.. NEVER again. No clean towels, room was never cleaned, we took our own trash out. First day we asked why nothing was done, they informed us since we were there for the week they don't clean the rooms. Are you kidding me??

We needed a place to stay in the area and decided to the the Rainbow. It was fine for a budget choice. The let us cancel our second night reservation after we arrived, which was nice. The managers were friendly and helpful. The in-room coffee wasn't great but there was a coffee cabin just down the road.

“We stayed on the upper level at the back of the motel. It's still on ground level; the motel's a two story built into a hill; the upper room windows facing the front of the motel and the street. The pool is in the back, so if you have kids who are gonna swim, you'll want to be on the back of the hotel so you can watch them.”
