The staff at the motel were really nice. No complaints whatsoever. The rooms weren’t exactly the cleanest though. Motel could use a remodel.

I came to town for a funeral and stayed one night. It was fine... a little dated, which I can live with. I will say there was a mild smell, reminiscent of when we have not been at our cabin for awhile and somebody (mice) died in the walls...In addition, the blower fan in the room was a bit noisy. I don't mean to make it sound bad, because it was not; just very average.
