The motel owners were very nice and I think they're trying to make the motel as presentable as possible in its current condition. However, it appears to be an older motel that's dated and has simply seen its better days. The carpeting was worn and stained and the shower surround, an outdated goldish-brown color, was discolored - not sure if...

This motel is not in good shape..outside or inside. The exterior is very dated and the concrete steps leading upstairs are cracked and broken. Inside the room is uninviting. The mattress needs replacing and the upholstered rocker was broken listing to one side badly. The TV was 1990's vintage or older. In addition, the lights to the bathroom and sink...

We like to support local ma & pa motels when we're traveling. The Sherlock was clean, and the owner was so friendly, giving us lots of recommendations for places downtown. We enjoyed our stay! Nothing fancy, however it was a nice place to rest for the night! Thanks

The Sherlock Motel is a first- rate, super clean and comfortable traditional motel. Such a pleasant change from the bland carbon copy chains. The stay was a pleasure, starting with the kind reception from the owner, who really cares about her guests. The room was well appointed and spotless, the bed very comfortable and everything just worked without fuss. Just...

Room was very nice and clean. Wonderful, friendly owner. Highly recommended. Location is great for wandering downtown for some food, yet off the main street, so location is nice and quiet. Check in and out was easy.

The reviews sold the place for me. It is like people said, not new so has some character and Sonia is delightful to visit with and helpful. Rooms are a good size (1 bed though big enough for 2), clean and good wifi. Got recommendations for other motels for my trip east. Sorry to see these places being hurt by...

A fly would starve to death here. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Décor is right out of the fifties and sixties so if you like something a little different then this is the place. The owners are on site to make you feel welcome and their service and hospitality are second to none.

I can't say enough good things about the Sherlock and Sonia the owner! This may be a budget motel but the room i had was very large, nicely furnished in a bit dated style but sparkling clean, great fast wifi, super A/C and tons of places to hang and store things. Sonia is endlessly helpful... I even saw her help...

My husband and I were traveling on bikes along the northern tier. Our trip ended in Shelby where we were going to catch the Amtrak. We stayed at the Sherlock which turned out to be a wonderful choice. The hotel is located a few blocks from downtown, two blocks from a grocery and a few blocks from the train station....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Open seasonally June thru September.. Older, well-kept facility. Making sure our rooms are clean, cozy, and comfortable is our number one priority. Our customers tell us that our free WIFI is excellent, and they really like the gourmet coffee service in their room. Be in the middle of it all. We boast the closest access with a level walk to downtown dining, shopping, and nightclubs with casinos. We're just a short block to the latte shop and only grocery store. Our facility is situated in a quiet residential setting, but conveniently located between major churches, mortuary, and courthouse. See you soon! ... more   less
