Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was adequate. Very basic. I will bring my own bedding if I come again, but I have no complaints. Short staffed due to the state of the country, but that's everywhere. I think we will stay there again if we come back to the area. The clam chowder from the restaurant across the street was amazing.

The room was updated except the bathroom, but that didnt bother me. They had plenty to do on site. Even my husband was shocked at this little motel. I would stay there again!
