I've avoided this place in the past because it doesn't exactly excel in terms of curb appeal. Not that it looks like a dump, but it certainly doesn't look like a newer place, is nondescript and located in a dated plaza that neighbors a title loan business. I'm very glad I finally gave it a try! It has obviously benefited from a fairly recent remodel, and the room was in very good shape with a very comfortable king bed and a sofa. For a negotiated price of $50, the room also had a fridge that was mid-sized, not mini, a microwave, free WiFi, a large television with plenty of channels and a full hot breakfast. The onsite bar/restaurant was called The Pioneer (I think) and had a wonderfully kitschy, over-the-top ambience that almost seemed like a Disney-themed attraction with wooden log furniture and plank bars. The food and service were both very good and the atmosphere was fun. Like the pioneer version of a tiki bar. For $80 this would have been a very good value. For $50 it was exceptional. Will definitely visit again. A special word of thanks goes to the warm and friendly service of Jay and Mary. less

Thank you for not avoiding us this time!! We are also glad you stayed, enjoyed the room and the hospitality, then wrote such a great review. Once the weather breaks, we hope to start updating the landscaping, new signage; just general "spring cleaning". Happy to see you enjoyed the Pioneer Tavern also. We hope to see you on your next visit to the area!
