This is an older motel. It is single story. The facility has been nicely updated. It is clean and comfortable. We especially like being able to park in front of our room. We would stay here again.

The lady at the front desk was super nice and helpful. But the room smelled funny and the floor was dirty, it had grime buildup on the floor. The beds made a funny noise all night because the pedestal is metal and we could not reach the closet without climbing over a bed. Also there was an old dirty rag in the freezer area of the mini fridge. We paid for two nights but left after the first night to find a different place to stay.
