I was treated to an unforgettable experience, made memorable in large part by the wonderful staff at the motel. I got excellent tips about the area, its history and things to do. The basic accommodations at this historic motel are...

I have stayed at this hotel for 26 years and to be honest, it had been going downhill badly for years. The new owner and his family are cleaning up this historical property, made the rooms more modern with a fridge/microwave/coffee and good wifi. Best of all to me was the proprietor, Manny, went out of his way to help...

The other villages only a short drive away, which is very convenient. Staff was super pleasant and the room was exceptionally clean. The room and...

5 ladies met here for a 3 day weekend family gathering. On a whole, we were satisfied. The new owner's were friendly and helpful. The owner asked me what they could do to improve our stay. We shared with them that somethings needed more frequent cleaning, such as windows, sills, picture frames, etc. The acrylic bathtub/shower units need to be...
