Location very good for exploring the surrounds. Accommodation is aging and needs refurbishing. However, comfortable in general.

Very nice and clean. Bathroom surprisingly spacious though the sliding door could be a little bigger to allow for complete closure

Fair 4,0
The diesel generator located immediately behind the rooms make them noisy and smelly, if you need to stay there then the camp sites probably are a lot quieter and have fresh air than the rooms.

The motel rooms were sufficient though rustic. We heard the buzzing of the generator all night.

Room area too small, no chair, lower level of bunk bed too low and will hit your head when sit down and get up.

Quaint cabins, somewhat worn.
Quaint cabins, somewhat worn. View was of river and bluff was beautiful. The only accommodation for miles around. So you stay here to explore the area, not because it is a vacation resort.
