Tiny bathroom but sparkling clean. Nice linen, comfy... More

Motel came recommended. Booked over the phone very helpful. On arrival we were welcomed and everything was ready. Room was well laid out and very clean. The best bed in over 2 weeks of traveling. Quiet, secure and comfortable. Would definitely stay there again.
