It is a modest roadside motel. The manager was very friendly. We stayed one night as a family. TV, fridge, microwave were all functional. Carpets recently replaced. It was a nice affordable stay.

We walked in the room, the overpowering smell of must and mildew was overpowering. We looked around, and left. I was fine loosing the $100.00 plus dollars I paid. Pay a little more and go somewhere else.

You get what you pay for. The motel is perfect as a place to crash after skiing, but don’t expect a five star resort. We left happy after our stay here, and I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who’s skiing on a budget. The only thing I’d note is that there was no lock on the bathroom door in our room, which was unexpected but not a big deal. P.S. As of when I booked, google claims there’s a hot tub here for some reason. Expedia doesn’t, but if you came here from google’s page just be aware that google’s got it wrong.

Overall, it was a place to sleep near Thornbury & Clarksburg. Nothing more. Bed was firm foam - good. Shower: water was hot & plentiful. Parking was plentiful - but snow was not plowed or shoveled, very slippery underfoot, & sidewalks not swept (so you tracked snow into your room). Fridge needed defrosting & no ice cube trays. Nothing but 2 flimsy plastic cups - nothing I could use to heat water in the microwave. No ice bucket. No local info about taxis etc. - except in the office which doesn't open until about 11:00. Manager displayed attitude about asking for receipt on checkout.
