We really enjoyed this place! We were a little thrown off at first by the no-contact check-in policy, but after more closely reading the directions, it was actually quite efficient and enjoyable.The room was perfect - it was clean, had more-than-expected amenities, and had everything we needed for a good night's rest.The only issue we had was we are used to a sleep-number bed and this mattress was a little firmer than we are used to, but that's simply a preference, not a fault.The proprietors were quite responsive via text (we only had one question), so I never felt disconnected.Overall, this was a terrific experience in a terrific hotel! Highly recommend!

Very unexpected find in Deerwood! Spacious studio set up in a small local hotel with comfortable furnishings; the bed was great and the bedding was bright white and spotless. The bathroom is adequate and could use an update (since there was no counter in there, we ended up using the little kitchenette sink area). Loved the large front window and appreciated being able to close blackout curtains at night. AC worked great even on 100F days. We also really liked being able to self-check in and out by code (no keys!) and would definitely stay here again. Check it out; you won't be disappointed!

Very clean rooms and sheets were fresh and white. The bathroom, which is the retro touch, needs updating a bit, but the rest of the room was updated nicely. I'm 5'11 and the shower head came to my chin, LOL. Karin, the proprietor, was very friendly and nice. Love the access to my room. There is no front desk to deal with. You get a code in your email to access your room. I will definitely stay again when in the area.
