Desperately in need of renovations. Bathroom door wouldn’t shut. Wallpaper falling off. Holes in the walls. The pool had 6 inches of Murky water in it. The heater smelled like it was going to catch on fire. Tha decorations are very dated.

This could be a nice place to stay if the owners fix it up.But for the price and some pictures I saw, I didn't expect to much. Our rooms carpet was full of stains. The room was musty smelling which bothered my allergies, the wallpaper in the bathroom was coming off, nice pink bathtub! There was a curtain to pull closed between the bed area and the bathroom sink area which needs replacing, the closet door mirror was off the tracks. The swimming pool was not operable and the screen door to the back porch I wouldn't even touch it (dirty), so bad you couldn't see through it! It's to bad, this place could be a gem. Don't even try to call the place, they don't answer the phone very much, owner keeps the office door locked and you have to ring a buzzer and wait for him to come and answer you. No hairdryer in room, no continental breakfast, sign on the back of door says "no pets" and website says pets allowed. Like I said I didn't expect to much for the price!

The location was great. The service provided by the manager was very helpful. The motel needs some work and repair. Overall stayed for two nights, and that was OK.

The property is obviously being "worked on" Parking was excellent. Lawns were mowed. Quiet location. There was an odd odor in the room. We purchased and left room freshener. It smelled musty when we first entered.

The room smelled musty and the sheets were scratchy. It was inexpensive compared with other places in the area, though, and the person at the desk was perfectly nice.
