I always check my beds whenever i stay at any hotel. Just so happen, one of the double bed had mold growing from the bed through the bed covering of the bed. $ 75.00 Wow....... they must pay to pass inspection........

The bed was firm enough while remaining soft. The shower was clean and towels were clean, too. Everything else in the room was well kept and clean. The cons are that the toilet flushes slow and that you can smell cigarette smoking and hear people if they are outside. However, I still felt safe. The pool looked well kept, yet... More

Has a lot of 'regulars' that live on the premises. Beds were not comfortable at all. Bath tub had really dark stains in it. Not a choice for our next trip for sure. Some of the doors to inside entrance did not close and lock so security is a big concern. We will not be back here.

A run of the mill motel/hotel. Room was a good size and fairly clean. It was fairly quiet and the hotel was in a good location for overnighters. We didn't try the breakfast so I can't comment. All in all we had a reasonable night.
