Motel is very clean and quiet. All amenities are in excellent condition, including the free breakfast & the staff is polite & friendly. Its new (at least seems that way) and well maintained. The common areas, rooms were really nice & clean. We enjoyed our stay, would be back next time.

I only stayed for a night. The room was spacious and seemed fairly clean, no complaints there except that the light in my bathroom was extremely dim. I had no issue booking online through a third party booking site. Free wifi that is literally just open and free, don't even need a code or sign in when you get online....

His response: "I no know if I can help you, no."...

Was pleasantly surprised and very happy about our stay for one night at this hotel. Was surprised how new it was. The rooms were clean and the beds were pretty comfortable. The size of the rooms were impressive. They also gave me 10 dollars off per night due to the fact that I booked 2 rooms. So still expensive at...

I just returned from a 6 night stay in Big Lake, where I attended a seminar. Although this was the only hotel in town, I found it to be conveniently located and well-maintained. I thought the nightly rate was a bit on the high side, but given the lack of competition, it is understandable. My friend stayed in a room...
