We had a reservation elsewhere in town tonight. We had reserved a king sized bed at the other motel. When we opened the door, it was like a dungeon inside, and the bed was a queen even though they insisted it was a king. We asked for a refund and started looking for Plan B. We stopped at Retro and asked about a king room. They had one and the price was really good. Given the last experience we were skeptical. When we opened the door we heard angels. HUGE, spotless room. A real king bed. Kitchenette. Cute retro decor. Seriously, the value here is evident. Definitely happy we ended up here!

Our family had a wonderful one night stay on our spring break road trip. It was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful (thanks, Andrea!). Our kids enjoyed playing outdoor chess and exploring the retro camper.

We pick the retro inn because of the great reviews and it is pet friendly. What a great find! I would normally avoid older non-chain hotels. However the great reviews got me to try this place and I am so glad we did. The interior is extra clean. Our room 1950 had tile floor and was on the end which we appreciated. Even though we were along the main st highway it was super quiet. The woman at the front desk was very friendly and helpful when I made the reservation and we appreciate all the good work that housekeeping staff is doing. Thank you for this lovely affordable hotel!

We stayed here a few years ago and it was great. But there were few other people there and we weren't aware of any noise. Like a true retro motel, you can hear people talking in the rooms on either side. When the person next door took a shower, there was no sleeping through it. The heater kicked on all night with the sound of a jet engine.
