The place is old but clean. The matresses need to be replaced since they sag and it was diffficult to sleep well on the beds. The check in person was nice and they do have coffee, juice and donuts in the am. Wifi did not always work.

For the price for staying the night it’s great. But it’s an antique kinda vibe going on so everything is pretty old and needs serious update. Since everything is old it doesn’t seem clean so all depends on point of view of each person. Had a good sleep and pool is good to enjoy your time there as well as casino not far from motel. If you want modern technology and not antique go somewhere else. If you need a place just to sleep and pass a little bit of time then recommend this place. Staff is so friendly and area is nice. Like I said just needs update to modernize place. Does have WiFi though.
