I liked the location. Super easy to get to and find. It was really clean. I didn’t like the smell of the room.

If you’re looking for a nice clean room with no thrills, this is your place. Friendly staff, clean room, sparkling pool, & fire pit (really for smokers as no pets or smoking in room). Free breakfast is nothing special but dining area is clean and plenty of cold choices.

Expected tolerable low-end stay for the low price. Experience just the opposite. Clean. Freshly painted and spruced up. Friendly staff. Retro-looking motel similar to those from my childhood. Felt completely safe. Would stay again.
