This is a nice throwback to the old reputable "Mom and Pop" Motels. It is older and very retro, but safe, scrupulously clean inside and out and with very friendly service at a good rate. If you just need a nice comfortable place for a night or two, this will be perfect.

Sort of quaint old property with many repairs. Smells like urine, ashes, and fresh paint. Friendly receptionist. Only one light on desk and one by sink; the shower and closet and bed are in the dark.
