We stayed in the luxury house not in the main motel. Very nice, slightly dated yet with elegant and comfortable feel. You are able to rent the whole house or also possibly individual rooms as well since there were electronic locks on each door.

Clean, large

Internet was very slow. The smell of chlorine from the indoor pool was overwhelming inside the hotel - our room was near it. Breakfast was good. It was a little overpriced. We paid around $160 - should be priced around $130.

Will visit again.

The rooms are spacious, comfortable and very clean. The staff was pleasant and accommodated our requests. Parking is plentiful and near the rooms. The location is on the main street next to all the shops and restaurants. This is a great place to use as a home base between other activities. However, if you want a luxury hotel, this is not it. The trucks running through town were noisy, but we were at the end unit near the street. We will book here again.

They took my money without my stay

I went online to book a room for July and the computer must have automatically changed my date to the date of the day I was booking in May and well, apparently, they charged my account that night, for the “stay”. When I called to ask about what happened and explained that I was home in Seattle, one girl said- “well we tried calling you many times but your phone number was disconnected”. She then asked me to call her manager the next day and when I called back, the manager said- “I tried calling you but you never answered your phone and so we placed the charge because you didn’t call us to tell us you couldn’t make it.” Well, ma’am exactly why would I call, when I booked my room for July? To this day, I don’t know which lie the we’re trying to stick to. Needless to say, I never received a phone call or an email of confirmation letting me know they were going to charge me for that same day. The manager was rude and she told me there was nothing she could do and was more argumentative about the fact that “she called me” than trying to resolve my issue and giving me my money back, then book me for the correct date. If I was in her shoes, I would have given my client a refund, especially if they were looking to stayed booked for their upcoming travel date. Terrible customer service, but I hope they got somewhere with the money they took.

Good, as always

The Bowen is an older motel, so it's not fancy. It is clean and adequate, with microwaves and little fridges in every room. There's no fitness center or breakfasts; there are countless alternatives for thaose who want them. For sleeping and showering and being close to the center of town, it's very good.
