    Property condition

    4/5 Good

    Clean, affordable economy hotel room

    A bit hard to find, as it is the back half of a long unit with a Quality Inn in the front half. That notwithstanding, rooms are clean and comfortable and the WIFI and cable TV work well

    First time without carpet, floor was cold. First room heat didn't work, requested another room.

    5/5 Excellent

    This is a newly remodeled , very clean, and professionally run motel.

    We booked this room for the good price and location to the Green Mill (not the attached restaurant with very limited hours). It was just a place to sleep so we weren’t concerned with the room so much, which actually was really clean. The front staff on the other hand... awful! I checked in later in the evening so there was no one else there checking in. Stood at the front desk for five minutes not being greeted while I watched two guys in the office eating pizza, possibly one getting trained. Both looked at me and didn’t say a word. When he did he was so short, didn’t give me any information, and was plain annoyed I interrupted him. At one point he stopped checking me in to go help his buddy in the office. If it weren’t for their rude front staff I’d stay here again. And don’t count on breakfast, it’s barely a snack.
