The owner is not truthful. He will lie and try to cheat you out of any reservation that you might've made online. The room smells like urine or mold. I'm not sure, but it's disgusting. My wife and I have done a lot of traveling, this was by far the worst place we ever stayed. It was just terrible.

This motel had obviously seen better days, with an overall impression of lack of upkeep and thorough cleaning. We only stayed there because we were blocked by floods. We do think that paying $79 the night for such a room was extortionate (as they knew there were a lot of travellers trapped in the area because of the storm). When...

I booked this property because there wasn't anything else available in Ashland. We knew we were getting in late and leaving early so ambiance wasn't an issue. It's an older property and a motel - outside entrances. Old school key on a keyring opens your door. First smell is a bit musty. I'm wondering what I got us into. The...

I was disappointed with the Internet. A very slow connection that I could only connect to for a few minutes if I went into the office. We booked 2 nights which was one too many. There is a good Mexican restaurant in front of the motel that is a plus to staying there.

Stayed here one night over 4th of July weekend for a visit to the Apostle Islands National Lake Shore. The room was not fancy or impressive but we didn't really spend much time other other than sleeping and a shower. Do bring your own shampoo. This is the first motel I ever stayed at that didn't have any shampoo or...

I've stayed in many older hotels and have never complained. I thought this hotel could've been handle better. First off, they accept dogs at the tune of $10.00 each, beggars can't be choosy. Especially when your camping in tents and it has been raining for 3 days. First hotel into town from the north and I took them up on...

Oh, my. . .where shall I start? Let me preface this by saying we only stayed here because there was nothing else in the area available. Nothing. Nada. Zip - and we looked, HARD. We even seriously considered checking out and buying a tent at WalMart until it started raining. First of all, the lock on the door didn't work....

Place is dirty - walls are filthy, air conditioner did not cool room at all, can't open wildows, inside of windows discusting, burn holes on bedspreads threw them off beds, room stunk. My $82.00 dollar room when I booked it turned into $131.00. I recommend it be shut down until until they clean it up. Absolutely discusting!

First impression was ok. Nice location. Then you walk into the office. The man behind the counter was rude. My $40 room turned into $78. We had an extra person, so yes, that is more. But he put us into a bigger room and charged extra. Once we got that sorted we got to the room. It was 60 degrees...

“My best advice is to find a different place to stay.”
  • Pretty sure this is where the mold is. Air conditioner dripping in the wall
  • This is the corner of the room. Hot water heat clinging in the room all night
  • This is taken underneath the bathroom sink. You can push your fingers right into the wall
  • This is what you need to step into if you would like to use the tub
  • The cobwebs don't really show up in the picture, but they do it exist
