You could tell this was an old property. They did a good job of trying to update it. But I could tell it was refurbished in a crude way. Staff was friendly, but very limited amenities. No in room coffee, no telephone in room to contact front desk for an extra pillow. No microwave in room, but there was one down the hall. I wouldn't mind the lack of amenities , but the room price should reflect that fact. Overall, last minute booking I couldn't really comp[lain too much. It was a very busy weekend and there were limited vacancies.

The bed was comfortable and the staff was great. We locked ourselves out in the middle of the night after visiting the Headlands International Dark Sky Park, (totally recommend the park), and the gentleman that was on staff happily came out as soon as we rang the bell to give us another key, and the cleaning staff did a great job. It's an older motel that has not been renovated, but it was clean and close to downtown.

The owner was VERY accommodating and helpful. He made the experience very pleasant. There was an outside pool, indoor pool, and an indoor hot tub. There was BBQ grills, picnic tables, and a playground for small children. The only breakfast provided was coffee, doughnuts, and muffins. We would definitely go back.

Front desk staff was extremely nice and helpful. We were also allowed to check in early. However, the rooms are extremely outdated and smelled damp/musty.

Not worth the rate we paid. Very disappointed.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: A major cleaning overhaul. Hire an Exterminator and Gardener. Update rooms and fix broken windows, luggage racks, mirrors, and headboard. Hairdryers.
Location: Nothing
Room smelled terrible. Musty and Dusty. Room was in major need of updates and maintenance attention. Breakfast was disgusting. Wifi connection was very poor and Kept kicking me off. Ants in bathroom. Air conditioner was on it's last leg...too noisy to run while sleeping. Pool was too creepy to enjoy. Lawn needed mowing and weeds were over growing. The front desk gal/manager did a lot of complaining and wasn't good at making you feel welcomed.
