We left mid morning the first day and when we returned after 5:00 the bed was still unmade and we had to empty our trash. We left and returned a few hours... More

The staff was very friendly and make you feel at home. They have a grill by the pool and a gazebo. The back of the motel has benches to hang out in their quiet property. Accommodating parking for trucks . Maid did a great job cleaning up my son's popcorn crumbs .

Tge website certainly makes this place look much better then it is, after reading the previous reviews I figured go for it! Without bashing the staff who were very pleasant I will just speak about the things that left a "bad taste" in my mouth. The price was more then I was quoted in the phone, the bathroom had tons...

The owner Gail is so accommodating and sweet. The room was perfect for my husband and me. We already made reservations for July and will enjoy sitting by the pool. Great location and easy access to the highway.

If you are a smoker who loves loud talking and the bright aroma of Lysol over cigarette droppings, this is the place for you. Wow! Really? And, it is pricey for such a dump. No working TV on top of the horrid odor. My husband and I couldn't sleep because the odor was so deadly. The continental breakfast is the... More
