It took all night to get the motel room warm. The shower was the oldest, dirtiest shower i have ever seen. There was no shampoo or conditioner in the room, and when we asked the motel clerk she did not have any either. Just a old run down motel with horrible accomidations. i wouldnt stay here again for the price.

The building is probably from the mid-'50s. The rooms are reasonably large and clean, but the furnishings are rather worn. The... More
