The room was clean however there was a cigarette burn on the blanket. The only thing provided is a tiny bar soap. No shampoos. The side entrance doors had ashtrays filled with water and garbage. Pool was under repair while we were there

The room was clean. Large, and easy to access for a disabled person. My service dogs were welcomed, and the desk staff even got me two (2) extra ice buckets for food and water, because I had left the dogs dishes in Wyoming... This was my first time in this motel, but I will be back.!

Toilet, had to flush hard, repaired incorrectly, cobbled. Overflowing trash cans in hallway, upstairs hallway dirty and smelled bad. Bigger bath towels would have been nice.
