It would be difficult for me to recommend this property for more than one night. Our room was missing the shower curtain and was very musty smelling. The towels were as rough as sand paper. It was disappointing.

Liked: Staff & service
It is an older motel, however, the staff was very friendly and professional. I loved my balcony on the river. The mattresses were very comfortable and the renovated bathroom was nice and functional. The carpets needed a deep cleaning.
