While we don’t typically stay in motels because traveling with children we feel interior entrance is safer, we were pleasantly surprised by this motel. It’s not new, but it was clean. The parking lot was well lit and we felt safe. The breakfast was fantastic and the woman manning it was so friendly and helpful! Would absolutely recommend this motel if you don’t need fancy, but want clean and reasonable price.

The hotel was clean and a large size, but the AC did not work and it was stifling. It had been left on fan and it could not cool the room when I changed it. I said something to the front desk and she did not seem to concerned or proactive in trying to solve the issue. Bed was comfortable and pool was nice.
