This is an older building but the rooms were clean and everything was in working order. Beds were comfortable. There was a silk flower arrangement on the dresser - a simple touch but it just made the room seem a bit more home like.

I chose this hotel because of the price and was impressed, but the couple who own this property try really hard to keep it up. Clearly, it is an "old school" type hotel with traditional keys, which is a rarity and a sign of other times, but the place was quiet and the bed was great and comfortable. Cable is better than other comparable hotels. The owners are very friendly and engage in conversation, which is great. This is small-town America!

Very run down. Would not recommend.
The photos of this motel were from a long long time ago because everything was very very old and run down. Peeling paint outside, tiny tiny room barely fitting a king size bed left little room to walk around. The room desperately needs clean paint and patching up. It appears some rooms house permanent residents who sit outside smoking, though they were pleasant it made me uncomfortable. Living room furniture outside on balcony and in outdoor pergola also seemed to be for the residents. The owner was extremely pleasant so I’m sad this stay was so unpleasant. Strange noises in the walls as well, made my husband very uncomfortable. Not sure what that was. Nice TV.
