Microwave, refrigerator, an older tv, no coffee pot no complimentary shampoo. Just one small bar of soap. 2 full size beds, window heat and... More

The lady at the desk was nice. But the room was not very clean and the bed bugs cover had a big hole in it. It could be a nice place if it was cleaned up. And, the scenic river view was nowhere in sight. Do your self a favor and stay in Oakridge.

I was on a long motorcycle ride and weather delayed me. As it got late I decided it was too dark and I was too tired to go any further. I saw the inn as I passed by and prayed it would be decent. And decent is a good word. I could tell it had been recently remodeled. The bathroom... More

Although this motel is being updated, I will say that it's doable. It's the closest to the job site and 22 miles away from a bigger county. Not much going on here. A handful of eateries with Subway and Hardee's being the best as they are open 7 days a week. The pizza partners need some help. Angie is only... More

Cons:Managers do not speak or understand english well, shower stalls in single rooms are too small, walls have no insulation so plan on hearing the... More

I have to be honest. Many people would not find this an Average place, but it's the kind of lodging I remember from the 50s and 60s. It's a typical, small roadside motel of that era, Pull off the road and right up to your room. I remember when this was the norm, and I'm not a huge fan of... More
