This place is an old motel that the staff works hard to maintain. The breakfast that’s included is shut down and no alternative is offered. Used the bathroom in the lobby and there was 7 crawling critters in it. The carpet in the rooms needs replacing due to large stains. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I had to have my cards reprogrammed a few times and was always met with a smile. The housekeeping staff maintained the room as clean as she could.
