The motel was fine for a one night stay just passing through. Room was cozy and comfortable, very “rustic” but clean and had all the necessary comforts. Check in fellow was very friendly and helpful. Beware however that food choices in the area are not great, and are open only sporadically. We ended up with dinner from a food truck which was the only option on a Tuesday at 5:00 pm!

Perfect Location for Big Pine Lakes Trailhead
We stayed at this motel over the weekend while we were in the area to hike to Big Pine Lakes. The hotel was very basic and not luxurious, by any means, but it was clean and super convenient for the trial head. It was only a 10-20 drive from the trailhead actually. The staff was very friendly as well and there is a gas station/convenience store next door, which was practical as well.

We were passing thru the area and decided it was time to get off the road. We booked the hotel and found it easily. Check-in is at the convenience store in front of the motel property. The gentleman was very kind and directed us to our room. It was large with 2dbl beds and a twin, galley kitchen, dining table, full bath. It was dated but cozy. The town was small and had limited eating establishments so we hopped back in the car and drive 7 miles to the next town which had more options. This is a great place to fish and the hotel caters to that clientele. It is also in the middle of mountaineering heaven.

All you need for a comfortable overnight no frills
It's just a roadside motel. Great for a quick overnight on a long road trip. Rooms are spacious and they have refrigerator and microwave and a small kitchen/counter area and a small dining area in the room. They have AC and heat but both are very noisy. It's connected to a convenience store and a gas station but it's not to noisy outside.. Furnishing are old and worn but clean and well taken care of.. They a lovely 50s country diner steps away and a few other places to eat nearby. Great shower and sufficient bathroom. Lots of storage. I will return on my next road trip.
