We had to knock on the neighbor's door and thankfully she had a key to let us in since we couldn't get a hold of anyone. Not sure where the previous people who wrote reviews stayed, but this...

Just stayed for a long weekend this past week. Clean,comfortable and perfectly priced. I'm all about value and this was a great one in my book. I could have booked a room just down the road with a better view but I would have spent about $50 more per night. This is not a fancy hotel but a basic motel... More
