I stayed in the motel this past weekend. My room was clean. The staff was not the most friendly but other than that everything was good. Price was cheap so didn't expect a whole lot. Wish there would have been another tv in the other room but we didn't stay in the room long enough to do anything but sleep... More

When we got to the motel, the first thing the girl (I believe her name was Crystal) said to me was that she needed all... More

My overall experience was ok. I got my room really cheap and did not expect to much. The rooms were ok but need updating badly.The only complaint I have is the rude staff. We stayed a week and out of the whole week I only met one staff member that was nice and professional. My son and I were walking... More
