Comparing Lodging Properties

Best Lodging Value - Zanesville, OhioWhat does Baker’s Motel offer that other local properties do not?

  • A quiet country setting, no other property in Guernsey or Muskingum County offers this.
  • Large Family Rooms – Our rooms with two beds are the largest in both counties and we have done alot of upgrading on this building also, though we still have the same paneling but what we have updated is the air-conditioning, Flat-screen televisions, most faucets are new, all carpet recently replaced, all painted recently, bed spreads, pillows and linens also are newer.
  • Family owned and operated –  My wife and I have owned and operated the property for over 30 years.
  • Large Antique Shop on premise – No other properties offer this.
  • Unlike many properties if you encounter something that does not work we fix it,  so you can enjoy you stay unlike most other properties that offer a discount upon leaving.   Say you rent a room and the air-conditioning is not working you at the chain you normally get to enjoy the room without ac, not at Baker’s we have spare new units, though most of ours are already newer units.

Fall is over and winter is here,  most of the other properties still have their rates to over $100. per night for a one bed room and much higher for larger rooms but at Baker’s you can stay for just under half of that for one bed and probably about half also of what they charge on the two bed rooms.   Grant it some of the properties are pretty new but if what you are looking is a clean and updated room with a fridge and microwave, wireless internet, color tv, and a comfortable country setting and rooms that are very quiet then stay with us.
