The Review: The bedding provided is so old it is yellow stained and brown. The actual person that says he “runs the place” is a “thug” that supplements his income by selling his prescription narcotics. He also asked for me to loan him money several days after I moved in. He also lives in his one bed room with another male indigent and apparently they sleep and live together with no visible means of support. Another occupant that was in close proximity to my room was a married couple with a young child and on welfare. The husband would not attempt to peruse employment, but was obviously involved in drug activity. I was even approached, “That I am selling drugs do you want any”. This individual was also wanting to barrow money (they actually had a prostitute call me at night and asked me to buy milk for their child). Afterwards husband became threatening. In Addition: On August 20th, I paid Richard Mang $600.00 cash for another months rent, providing him with the information that my upcoming engineering test is to be scheduled mid Sept. and I would make arrangements to determine if I needed to continue the rental agreement (This is a mom and pop motel with a daily rate of @ $45.00 a day). To make things short the “Thug” in the morning of Aug. 24th, when I went out for coffee. Threatened me and said, “He was going to have my tires sliced”. I immediately packed up and left the Sunset Motel. Also, immediately contacting the so called manager Richard Mang and reporting the incident. Richard Mang agreed; “I had the right to immediately leave”. Richard Mang the manager told me, “I would receive an adjustment for the remaining days that I had already paid for in advance”. After my engineering examination the Sunset Motel, Manager Richard Mang informed me over the telephone; “That he had contacted the owner/operator and they are keeping my money and there is nothing I can do about it”. I was in the Clarkston, Washington/Lewiston, Idaho area anticipating steelhead fishing in the fall. Things materialized in disappointing failure and I returned to Montana. I would strongly suggest staying a long distance away from this place.
Lovely Place. – I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this motel as it's quite cheap.
The motel has many things that you will not find except in places like major chain places such as in room hair dryers and free phone calls anywhere in the USA.
The rooms were very clean. the beds lovely and the service first class, also it has 24/7 video monitoring of the entire courtyard area which made us feel quite safe.
The old review by the editors here is no longer true though as they no longer have an exercise/steam room pool or laundry service but I wouldn't expect these in a place that charges $45 a night or less.
What you will find tho is managers who use 1960's service values and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable plus a comfortable and more importantly quiet stay.
If you are thinking of staying in or around Lewiston or Clarkston I can really recommend this motel.
