    For $78/night, one's expectations are generally fairly low. So I was pleasantly surprised when the room was very clean, well stocked, and comfortable. It was perfectly adequate for my needs -- a one-night stop-over on a four day road trip, so I have no complaints.

    This is your average motel. The family that run it are great! So sweet. Nice, simple place. Can't go wrong here. Affordable. If you are passing through town, the VIP may be the place for you. All one level.
