Fort Davidson Hotel

Reviewed 4 May 2012

My husband and I enjoyed meeting the family who own the motel. They are doing a wonderful job giving guests a good value for the money.

Cleanliness is of prime importance to us. So while the furnishings are dated, the room and bath were spotless. We were only here for one night but we will return for a longer stay

Room Tip: We stayed in room 29

Our family of 6 stayed here for one night while we went to Johnson Shut-Ins and Fort Davidson State Historic Site. The hotel's design and some furniture is dated, but it is very clean and comfortable. The staff at the front desk was extremely helpful--giving great suggestions and even menus from restaurants for dinner. Convenient location in this small town and to lots of area attractions. When we returned home, we realized we had left behind a Nintendo DS charger. They were nice enough to pack it up with lots of protection and mail it back to us. We would stay again & if you're in the area I would definitely recommend staying there!

Managers were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean. Pool was nice. Right across the street from the Fort Davidson park. Close to the Black River and Johnson's Shut-ins. Would stay there again.

Our family of four booked a two queen room. It was large enough, and the bathroom was larger than most chain hotels. The beds were comfortable, and it was nice to have the provided mini-fridge and microwave. It's very centrally located to many attractions. The owners were extremely helpful when we asked for restaurant and floating recommendations. The room and the swimming pool area were both obviously worn (i.e. bathroom floor had pattern worn off, pool area had rips in the outdoor carpet that surrounds it). That said, both were clean. Given that other places in the area cost well over $100 a night, I considered it a good value at about $75.

The owners are very kind, outgoing and friendly. Room was small but very clean and neat. Coffeemaker, frig and microwave in room. Air conditioner worked quietly and efficiently. TV was nice with good selection of channels. Everything worked well. Bathroom was nice size and also very clean.

Kids loved the pool. Outdoor with deep end, fairly large.

Town has Subway (open for breakfast), McDonalds and Sonic. The Fort Davidson Restaurant had very good inexpensive food.

Would stay here again.

We stayed 3 nights at Ft Davidson Motel in July 2010. We chose it because of the convenience to area attractions like Johnson Shut-Ins, Elephant Rock SP and Tom Saulk Mtn. The room and pool were clean and the food/service at the restuarant was very good. The room was small but comfortable. The A/C unit was a little noisy but other than that we slept comfortably. The motel staff were friendly, helpful and unintrusive.

Nice flat panel t.v. on the wall. Cabel, but no HBO. Fast check-in service. Great location for watching a re-enactment at the fort across the street. Parking lot was being paved, so had to park vehicles at the restaurant parking lot, with hotel parking lot very, very muddy to walk across to room. No way of preventing tracking mud into rooms. Maid did not clean our room the second day. Trash was overflowing by evening. Bed was not made. Floors were not swept from all the mud. I had to go to office & ask for a trash bag. They gave me a bag to change the trash myself. The kicker was the envelope left on the table suggesting a tip for the maid service! Needless
