I was initially worried about staying at this motor inn based on other reviews. I did not notice any mustiness - and there's something neat about real printed sheets instead of bleached white like every other hotel/motel chain. It kind of felt like staying at my Grandma's - as other reviewers have pointed out, the decor could be updated but... More

I always hate to write a negative review, but I also feel the need to be honest, both to warn future guests and to perhaps help the management of such institutions see the potential for correcting a problem.

This is a no frills motor inn. When I say no frills. I mean NONE. We've stayed here on a couple of occasions when our power was out for the night. The rooms were tiny but it was only for a night and close to our home but what do you want for 45/night? The rooms prior to this occasion... More
