Comfy beds. Very clean. The night we stayed was a horrible wind storm so the WIFI was spotty but besides that a great room. Staff...

The motel is newly refurbished, clean, convenient. Neighborhood looks safe. Right off of...

It is a "down and out" hotel as opposed to interior hallways. Great to just back the car up to the door. King rooms are large, well appointed. There...

Room was large, warm and inviting . Price was most appealing to us as well. Friendly service. We needed to go to a department store for some items before turning in for the night and Tim, our desk clerk was very helpful in directing us to a dept store.
