I had a reservation for one night at the Motel Forrest. I made the reservation on Hotels.com. When I arrived they had no record of my reservation. I had to pay for a reservation right there, and got my Hotels.com reservation refunded. No loss in $$ but kind of a hassle. The room was old and the TV didn't work... More

This is one nasty little motel. Never staying there again. Old paneled walls painted hot pink-yes hot pink! It was dark and dingy and not too clean. The heating was a gas wall heater that looked like it was left over from the 50's or 60's.

It was like we were in the Twilight Zone. We arrived at the motel at 8:00 PM. I told the women at the front desk our name and that we had a reservation, she said no I didn't so I showed her my confirmation number and she called someone then handed her phone to me. The person introduced himself and... More

This is a nice little hotel if you're visiting the Covered Bridge area, the mgr. gave us a room close to internet router so I could do my reports. The rooms are small but nice and come with a Micro & Frig., the TV is old but had plenty cable channels

We had a fine experience staying at this hotel. I read the reviews before traveling, so had an idea of what to expect. We were in room 14, I think they only have 20. We were able to back up virtually to the door, so loading / unloading was easy. No stairs as all units are ground level. The room... More

Arrived around 1 AM. Was told they only had one room left. We were so tired and needed sleep that we took the room sight unseen. The room was definitely in need of a good cleaning and updating. Much to our surprise we had cold showers the next morning. The hot water fixture just spun and did not give any... More
