I booked this trip through booking.com and to be honest, after reading the reviews, I almost cancelled the reservations. I am SO glad that I did not. The manager was the kindest man! The lobby is beautiful! Apparently, they pay attention to the reviews written here because EVERY ROOM had BRAND NEW mattresses and box springs. Our room was SPOTLESS... More

The bed was terrible, I could have slept on the floor and been more comfortable. There was blood on the dust cover for the boxsprings. The towels looked like they had been around for ages; they were stiff and covered in stains. There was mold in the bathroom. Just a horrible experience. Don't even think about paying for their ice.... More

There is definitely more bad than good at this place. The mattresses were ROCK HARD, and could have easily been the box springs only. The shower is terrible, the shower head is very dated and the tub was slanted - a problem for my disabled mother in law. The bathroom light is a timer switch and you are in the... More

Awful bed, terrible air conditioning, there was mold in the bathroom and ROACHES!!! I'll never stay there again. Paid over 100 dollars to sleep in this nasty room. I would have rather slept in my car.

We stayed for two nights. The beds are hard as a board and very uncomfortable. Outlets are not up to date...I could not plug in my cell phone charger. No fan in the bathroom and the tub did not drain well. There is no microwave or refridgerator and you have to pay a quarter to get ice. Despite these small... More

First appearances the room smelled and looked clean. However the bathroom tub looked dirty. It had black stuff in it. There was mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. How hard is it to clean? Cleanliness is the least you would expect at any hotel.

We loved this motel. So cute and quaint, and a perfect way to start our week journey. I was actually depressed it was over after one night! Wanted to stay longer! Such a cute place and nice, friendly owners. If you are used to the Ritz, do not stay here! It is a basic room with a sink outside the... More

Stayed two nights and was impressed with the outside of the motel. The pool was nice and the lawn and shrubs were pretty. I did find out that you don't have to be a guest to use the pool. Several random people came to swim which made for crowding at the pool, not to mention some of them were rude.... More
