Cleanliness, location, parking and price are all great! Quiet motel, was not loud at all. Very peaceful. My only complaint was the thread count in the sheets, they were on the rough side and not as soft/ comfortable as I would have expected.

Loved the bamboo around the property... it kept the place quiet. The heaters in each room where very nice. The one level was also a treat to not have any one above or below us. I would definitely stay here again.

This is a corona free environment far as I can see. Im rating this motel 5 for its hardworking staff that is available 24/7 . Free of obnoxious advertising very simple and clean. A flat with Shammas is accurate in this little hide out on the West side. Thanks. Ill be mentioning this motel for inquiries for business accommodations. Laura's customer service skills are appreciated.
