    Clean. Nice owner. Very reasonable rates. Good location. The hotel has deferred maintenance that could be done: worn carpet, old tv, old paneling, slow draining sinks, etc. Overwhelming smell of perfumed cleaner or other chemical that I've smelled in other motels.

    I believe the earliest you can check in is usually 3:00 PM. But they are really sweet about late check ins!

    Yes, there is. I would ask the owner where she'd like you to park. This was an EXCELLENT place.
