This is a 1950s motel that has not been renovated since the 1950s. It's not modern, but it is clean, quiet, and the retired American couple that manages it are very friendly and courteous. The beds, sheets, towels are new and perfectly OK, everything else is original. In theory, the hotel offers Wi-Fi, but in practice, the connection is so...

When I travel to Ladysmith, I stay here. Big room, microwave and refrigerator. Clean, decent TV. WiFi has been spotty. Do not expect a luxury hotel. It is old, and dated but well worth it. At half the price of the two new motels in town it is a great value.

We spent 2 weeks up here while my husband worked in the area. This motel looks like its going to be questionable so we asked to see the room first. The owners( newer) are friendly and go out of their way to make your stay nice. The room was in good order, fresh beds and towels, no dusty surfaces, the...

We stayed overnight, but won't be staying again! I suggest you spend an extra $30 and stay at the AmericInn. Room #113 was dark, dank and dingy! Had a king size bed with a mattress that was harder than the gross shag carpet on the floor! I would have put the couch out on the curb! No Wi-Fi! The TV...

The stench in the office will give you a tip off to keep driving! This motel, literally, is just a bed and hot shower. Try to ignore the stained carpet and chairs. Bed was reasonably comfortable and it was nice to be able to open windows for fresh air.

I stayed here a few years back also and it was aweful!! But then owner installed a new management couple who have turned this run down hotel around! It is quiet and clean. Nothing fancy to it, it is an old hotel. But it is clean and no bugs anywhere. ( I have been told that the state inspector now...

Friendly and considerate owners/managers. The room looks like any other 60s type motel. It has a shower sink toilet and bed. How much more can one ask for? Ya, it smells, looks and feels like a creepy old motel, but it comes with a bed, and when I lifted the covers - no bugs, not even under the mattress. (I...

I stayed here years and years back with my family and would much rather sleep in a car. I'm not sure how this place hasn't been shut down by the health department by now. As soon as I lifted the covers to crawl into bed I noticed something beat me to it..... the bugs! The place is just a dump,...

I made a reservation and secured it with my credit card. When I arrived they made me pay for the whole time I was reserved for. Now this wouldn't be so bad if it was like any other hotel. But when I found out I would be leaving two days early, I was told that they had a "NO REFUND"...
