Pleasant stay, good accommodation

We were traveling in a large group of five, and this motel had a room with three beds. The staff was friendly and the room was comfortable and suited our needs well.

Hot Room. Hard to Sleep. Long time cooling down

Enjoyed the motel. Great to be close to our family- for grandma's funeral.

Cute but Awful

Pros: The decor was clever, kitchzy and fun and the location was ideal for what we were doing in the area.
Cons: Fix the bath/shower drain, get adjustable climate control and treat for bugs.
Heater was ON or OFF (electric fireplace), no night stands, luggage racks, closets, or tables to place your things, drain in the shower was incredibly slow (end of shower you were shin deep in water that took over an hour to drain fully), mattress springs were sprung and dug into hips/shoulders and squeaked every time we moved, walls are paper thin - we could hear everything our neighbors were doing inside their rooms, and in their cars outside. The parking spots were so close to the hotel doors that exhaust from our neighbors truck wafted in under the door. Neither one of us got a decent night's sleep either of the two nights we were there. Worst part - something chewed on me pretty badly during our stay in room #6 (Bears). At first I thought it was an allergy to the detergent they washed the bedding in, but as the swelling on my arms, chest, back and face calmed down with some antihistamines, they are clearly bites - I was utterly miserable the entire weekend, and for a week after (I'm highly allergic to bed bug bites).

Great hotel

We really enjoyed our stay. The room was very comfortable and very clean. The bed was also very comfortable. My wife loved the nice fuzzy blanket.
