Really like that they provide a kitchenette with basic dishes too. The area is also nice and quiet so you can get a good night's sleep. Could use a bit more work with cleaning the rooms.

Filthy disgusting Motel!
The room smelled and the sheets were stained. Photos attached. Clearly this was not cleaned. During this time of a pandemic this was so disgusting and repulsive shame on the management and owners of this establishment. After my insistences they moved us to the Coast which was not much better we couldn’t sleep the 2nd night because of a hotel party. I have been in touch with the owners and still have not heard back regarding a refund for at least one evening due to this terrible inconvenience.
