Wedding stay
Cleaniless was great. Very dated and pillows need to be replaced as sleeping was not super comfortable. Curtain needs to be fixed as well since looks out to the parking lot and hard time closing it all the way. No breakfast but not an issue for us.

This motel was perfect for what we wanted. A clean place to sleep for a night. VERY clean and VERY quiet even though it was completely booked. I would definitely reccomend it for someone who just wants the basics. Again, VERY clean.
