Do not stay here !

Pros: price
Cons: everything
Location: Loved the little town and shops.Have your breakfast at the "Daily Grind " because it was wonderful.
Room seemed clean but breakfast was a joke ! We went out for breakfast. Air conditioning in our room kept freezing up so staff offered us a fan. We settled on this because the price was right and other motels were full. Book you room early somewhere else even if you have to drive to a neighboring town.

Lake Area very scenic area

Pros: Pretty much everything
Cons: I have nothing to suggest
Location: Several lakes, a campground, fishing, an American Legion Hall fronting highway 13 - the same street that the hotel was located, a few souvenir shops
At first, after reading the reviews we were not going to stay but we found nearly all of the negative reviews either false or ....... There were no roaches nor signs of any ... The breakfast was adequate but frugal ..... and we were informed of when and where without asking . There were signs of wear, but the family-staff worked endlessly cleaning. There was a double lock on the door ( built in dead-bolt) and you needed a current key card even to get into the motel itself . There was always a staff member near the entrance 24/7 so we felt very secure . They were easy to find, parking was well lit . I honesty cannot think of a single complaint .
