Reviewed 29 August 2011

First of all they have mice, they only change the sheets in the bedrooms,not the comforter, so if you stayed there you most likely slept on someones bodily fluids, eeeww, found hair in my bed,not recommended i will never stay there again.the breakfest which is just donuts cereal and a cold boiled egg, taste like theyve been left out over night, got sick to my stomach,however the motel does have potential but in serious need of new management someone who will take running a bussness seriously and not running it into the ground-disgusting experience never again

We have stayed at this motel several times in the past several years primarily for autumn foliage viewing, but have stayed there in summer and winter as well. It is one of a very few properties that will allow a large-sized dog (in designated "pet rooms".) The motel has declined significantly over recent years since it's main regional attraction - "Flavours" restaurant and club - relocated to nearby Pittsfield. The property has become a small ghost town, very few cars in the parking lot at all times of the year. Maintenance has visibly deteriorated - grass growing through many cracks in the empty parking lot and in the concrete around the pool. The daily, included, breakfast "buffet" has shrunk to a few pastries and cold cereal. No eggs! It was a very decent buffet back in the day. And DO NOT stay there in the winter!! The buildings are not winterized and the heaters are totally insufficient to warm the room. We left after a frigid one night in January. The ONLY reason we would ever go back is because of our much loved pooch!

Room Tip: In the autumn, back building, second floor facing west toward the mountains. Incredible view..

We stayed here one night only, arrived late and left early. Please bear this in mind when reading this review. Front desk staff were nice. Room adequate. Bed & bathroom very clean - everything working. Tea/ coffee facility in room. Unfortunately one corner of the room had a wet patch on the carpet and this gave off an unpleasant odour. Complimentary breakfast is Continental. Coffee, Fruit, Juice, Cereal, Muffins, Donots and you can make your own Waffles. No meat or cheese. Cutlery/delph all disposable and breakfast room is bare and without atmosphere - not the nicest place to start your day! In our opinion this hotel is dated and is a place to put your head down for the night and move on next day. If that's what you need then that's ok. If you need more rre-think before you book.

Stayed here over July 4th - every other place in the area had a 3-day minimum. Staff was shifty and very foreign. Room was outdated, bed was like a sponge with metal bars embedded in it. TV was a 18" from 1989. Water pressure was next to zero. BUT, it was remarkibly clean given the run down look of the place. The ice maker worked remarkibly well also. Stay here as a last resort or if you get a super cheap rate unlike I did.
