It is an older hotel in need of some cosmetic upgrades but it was clean enough. They did have top of the line plush bath towels and wash rags. The air conditioning worked well. If you're looking for a good enough hotel then this one is for you.

We ended up in this hotel because my son had a dog and this was the only place with a vacancy that took pets. I removed the bedspread because I didn't think it met my standards (old stains on the flip side). I did get a blanket from the housekeep because I needed a top cover. The bathroom was very... More

Stayed there last night, it's definitely dated. All of the furniture is worn. Mattress isn't the best. But staff was great! Pool looked nice. Quiet location, but heard someone else's TV throughout the night. Would go back again.

I would recommend this motel to my friends and family. The room and bathroom were nice and clean. With a comfortable bed. We stayed only two nights but enjoyed it. The kids made me go get some fishing poles so they could fish in the late. My kids had a great time and it was like when I was growing... More

Rooms were clean, but the guest laundry was filthy and the machines weren't working. This was known to some staff but no signs were put on the machines nor was there a means to get any lost money back. Check to see if there are refurbished rooms. Our room had badly chipped paint around the door and windows, unpatched holes... More

Room was nice and clean. We were happy to find a pet friendly motel. The breakfast was nice and offered lots of choices. King size bed was nice but pillows were small and cheap. Desk staff were nice and helpful.
