Decent place to stay but was a lil pricey for the lack of amenities. The best part was the view of the creek and it was nice and peaceful. The beds were ok as far as being comfortable but not great. Beautiful view of water!

This place is quaint, the staff are very courteous and helpful. Parking is great and close to your room. Our room was right on the river and it was really nice to listen to and look at the short time we were in our room. There is a trolley stop right across the street and plenty of shopping and restaurants...

We really enjoyed our stay here. The view off the balcony was worth everything. Balcony actually hangs over the river. Very lovely, private, and peaceful. Room was a little outdated, but pretty clean and room to move. We arrived very late (12am-1am) and we're still able to get in without a problem. The front desk guy didn't provide me with...

This motor lodge is close to downtown, walking distance from everything but still not in the middle of the crowd. We loved it right away. Super view from the balcony, Very retro! Very cool! This is going to be our go-to place to stay anytime we are up on the mountain!!

If you are looking for a reasonable place to stay this is it. The room was clean and right on the creek. We had no problems and the staff was really good. Wi-fi was a little spotty in the room. We enjoyed it and will stay here again. They are doing some remodeling to update the rooms.
