Good for over night stayWe just needed a place to stay overnight on a 2 day trip and this was adequate. The room had a microwave and small fridge, but no in-room coffee maker. Free breakfast available but it was all carbs. Okay if you eat that sort of thing. Overall, good for a 1 night stay.

Good for the priceOur door to our room was hard to open..there was white lint or pieces of paper on our floor. The door at the end of the motel wouldn't open from the outside and there was no note stating so and we had to walk around in the cold tp get back in. The plus was the bed was comfy.
