We have stayed in Many Hotels, motels, cabins during our excursions. always find gems in out of the way places. BUT NOT THIS ONE. We had to Pay in advance, was told it may get a little noisy but it will stop at 12 midnight, from the pub. It was Noisy the whole night. I did not like sleeping on cheap sheets with a Plastic Mattress cover, pillows were flat, 2 towels in the bathroom that were like sandpaper, The lamp was broken, the bulb was actually broken in pieces. The dust and cobwebs were unreal. The free Continental breakfast was not offered. The room was Dirty! I could go on but am Glad we only spent the one night. As for the dining room and the uncooked french fries and surly waitress, another story in itself. When we needed to check out(as fast as we could. There was no one there!
We spent one night here and it was awful...When you check in you are given an information sheet that says the pub can be noisy at night, and no refunds will be given (you pay full amount upon check-in). We figured that since it was a Tuesday evening in a small town, it wouldn't be too bad...Boy were we wrong! The pub was full all night, with loud music until 2:00AM, then when the pub finally closed, the patrons headed onto the deck out behind the pub and someone decided to blast the music from their truck (right outside our room)...The men's washroom must have been on the other side of our room, as we could hear loud voices and what must have been the paper towel dispenser all night too. Needless to say, we did not get very much sleep...Besides the noise, the room was not that nice, there was still coffee in the pot leftover from the previous guests, and a toothpick on the floor right next to the bed. The tourism guide said that there was a continental breakfast provided in the room, which must have been the coffee and tea that was available...No food, and the restaurant did not open until 11:00AM. If you don't mind the noise, it would be an ok place to stay, but I would not recommended this motel for a good night's sleep!

I chose this motel because it was mentioned on the web page of the fantastic gallery (King's Point Pottery - see separate review), which was the reason for our visit to this area. I recommend that if you visit King's Point, you stay somewhere else. If you've read any of my other reviews you'll know I'm not a prima donna about my accommodations, but this place left me kind of speechless. The restaurant wasn't open the night we were there (granted, early in the season, but isn't that the kind of thing they should warn you about when there aren't many other places open to eat?) Our room at the back of the motel featured a ramshackle collection of mismatched furniture and we actually had to pay an extra $5 or $6 for our "in-room continental breakfast!" This included instant oatmeal and instant coffee, but I had to unplug the TV and move around some furniture in order to be able to plug in the provided kettle. The "stairs" to our room were pre-fab concrete that I don't think were ever high enough to get to the door, and they were crumbling as we stepped on them. I anticipate a lawsuit for the motel by the end of the season if they don't fix those. (See photo.) The men's urinal in the adjoining bar/lounge was running on for several hours and was very loud, but when my husband went over to the bar to ask about fixing it, he got no satisfaction. Sure, the room appeared clean and it was fairly cheap, but it was definitely not good value, and I couldn't get out of there fast enough in the morning.
