The property is very well restored to what I imagine it was when it was new. Perhaps better. I loved that when we entered the room, the classic looking radio was playing music from the 60's. Nice touch.

It was a cute hotel in the middle of no where. Kinda sketchy at first. Property exterior needs some help. Room looked nice and the beds where comfortable. Extremely loud A/C units, so loud you had to blast the t.v to hear it. No refrigerator so no keeping food for later. Plumming was touch and go. Thankful for the thick wooden crrutains to hide the sun. The vent to the bathroom was a half open window with the view of the gas station. Did not use the showers, so no clear view on them. Nice theme to the hotel though. Overall good single night stay.
