Thank you for a nice stay.
Liked the updates to a vintage motel. I stayed here because I wanted to enjoy the old fashioned buildings. They had the rooms very cutely decorated. Beds were comfy. We enjoyed the cleanliness of the room. It was a nice stay, but I think there are extended stays there. Someone kept coming and going in a truck in the parking lot outside our room. Outside the motel is crowded area.
