The rooms are very spacious, clean, and quiet. The bathroom had plenty of space and there is another countertop/sink outside the bathroom for extra convenience. The towels were very plush and there were lots of them! The bed was comfortable with enough linens to keep you warm. My only complaint is I feel the front door should be more secure. There is no deadbolt and the swing arm lock doesn't seem adequate as the only locking mechanism. Other than that, the stay was very enjoyable and as an added bonus the drive-in theater over the fence had all 4 screens playing movies! We would definitely stay here again.

Although this place is cute it really was bare bones. There were ants in the bathroom and the towels weren’t changed even though we asked for them to be. If a cheap hotel is what you want then this is fine. Wouldn’t stay again.
