Quiet place to stay. The room was decorated with nostalgic looking appliances-mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker, as well as colors trough out. The bed was very comfortable and the hotel quiet. Good find compared to most hotels. We like the convenience of exterior entrances so this place stood out more. I would stay here again!

Nice older motel.

Nice small older motel. Nothing special, but quiet area. Just right for one night when all you want is a night's rest. The bed was not the best and the shower temp was erratic, but would stay again on the way through.
