older motel with very small rooms. Heard people above and a group who sat outside on the shared porch. Could clearly hear the whole conversation even when they were occasionally quiet. Very thin walls/ceiling! Very clean. Staff was nice. Overall fine for one person/one night.

Room was very clean. When we walked in the room had a subtle bleach smell but being a traveler during COVID I didnt mind. Overall a good experience and would stay here again.
