Really old property that needs updating. We were there for 4 nights and never saw housekeeping the entire time. Noisy neighbors with a large dog tied up outside their door on the sidewalk.

Chill, chill, chill. And a bit of nostalgia built in. Old school motel with baked in community comfort. On my next visit will not stay anywhere else within 30 miles.

It is an old property and shows its age. Carpets were very dirty, mold on the ceiling of the shower, internet connection was spotty if it worked at all.

Wouldn’t go back
Property is over priced for what you get. Not saying it was terrible but during our trip we stayed at much nicer places for less money. The owner was nice and seems to be geared towards bikers which we were. Parked our bikes under a car port. Rocking chairs under the carport were broken down. Room wasn’t the cleanest. The blinds on the window were broken and looked like they had been hanging there for 20 years. Tiny bathroom and the shower head was about 5 feet from the floor. Almost had to get on my knees to rinse my face.
