7/3/11 I called the Blue Spruce Motel to reserve a non-smoking room with (2) queen sized beds for 9/2/11. Allan, the desk clerk, told me that the owner, Tom, was away and I should call back next week and speak with him.
7/6/11 I called Tom, the owner, and he made my reservation for the non-smoking room with (2) queen sized beds located on the 2nd floor for the night of 9/2/11. This was secured with my credit card. I asked Tom to email me confirmation, which he did. See Below:

The Blue Spruce Motel
9/2/11 At 9:00am I called the Blue Spruce Motel and confirmed my reservation by phone.
9/2/11 At 4:00pm I arrived for check-in and was given a key for unit #124. Unit #124 was on the 1st floor and did not have queen sized beds. I explained that I had paid for a 2nd floor, non-smoking unit with 2 queen sized beds. Tom initially told me that he moved me because thought I would like this new room better. When I told him I wanted the room that I had reserved and paid for, he told me I couldn’t have it because he had given it to a customer who walked in before I arrived. I asked him to move that customer to unit #124 and give me the room that I had paid for and reserved 8 weeks earlier. He then proceeded to tell me that he wouldn’t move the new customer because he would make more money from the new customer as they were staying longer. I took out the confirmation email to show him what he had confirmed to me and he became angry and rude. He told me if I didn’t like it, he would refund my money and I could go somewhere else.
If you stayed here once several years ago and didn't like it, don't let your past experiences sour you to the thought of returning. The Bluespruce Motel is completely redone. They now serve complimentary continental breakfast. Their rooms come equipped with flat screen TVs and the carpets, comforters, curtains; everything has been updated. There is wifi access in all rooms and the office. The rooms are kept impeccably clean. If you once did not enjoy your stay here, I can guarantee your stance on this lovely place will make a complete 180 upon returning.
Unique Quality: Something that really stands out to me is the fact that this place is family owned for 30 years. While I was in the office eating continental breakfast in the office, the owner's daughter was there learning the family business. I know to many people this type of thing doesn't matter, but I just found it heartwarming to see that the whole family is behind the operation.
