In August 2019, Dave Haefner purchased the East Side Motel & Cabins and took on a massive remodel project to bring the motel back to its full potential.


After months of hard work, we finally opened our doors to offer a clean and comfortable experience as you travel.


As a local, family-owned business, we can't wait to be your home away from home and wish you all the best on the road ahead!



With eight comfortable rooms in the motel and two lodges, we are excited to accommodate both solo & group travelers!

"I wish I could give more than 5 Stars–Dave and his team deserve 10 Stars! Hubby and I stayed at this adorable motel for 5 weeks. From day one we were treated like family. The room was clean, very comfortable, and the service was phenomenal! We will gladly stay here again and will proudly tell everyone we know about this location. Thank you Dave and girls for all you did to help us stay comfortable when we were so far away from home. We appreciate you more than words can say!"
