a vintage property, it's old but then so are we. this was our second time staying here and again we found it very convenient, very affordable and the staff is great. where else can you find black and pink tile bathrooms right out of the '50's!!

The curtain had holes in it, shower curtain had mold on the bottom,lamp shades cracked.The pool outside was green, should have a cover on it. Housekeeping never came and cleaned or give us towels. Had to call the office twice to get some. Just a very run down place. We got moved there cause the Three crowns motel overbooked.

This Motel is not a national chain and, as a result, may not be what you expect from today's motel/hotels. But was great for myself. I know the Wi-Fi was out and the Free Breakfast was just that FREE. But I did not stay here to eat or play on my tablet. This is a perfect place to sleep, get... More

We arrived on a Friday night at about 8:30 or so, when we first arrived the woman working the front desk walked us to our room which was nice of her. Every morning I'd go get my coffee in the office where the front desk is and talk with the man working the desk, his name was Richard, such a... More

Small old fashioned motor-inn located within easy walking distance of restaurants, bars and the visitor center. Been the same for 20 years. It's not the Ramada or Comfort Inn, but a convenient place to stay with a helpful staff.

I should have known what I was in for when I saw the scummy, green pool...but we were road weary and tired. The room smelled like wet dog. The carpet was sticky, and the beds were very uncomfortable. The room was so dirty, I was loathe to touch anything. The bathroom was OK, or I would have left. The owners... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel and the last night we see brown and red tiny bugs on the bed along with some blood marks we didn't see the previous night. And yes we are a clean family. Do not recommend staying here theres many better places to stay.

Great place to stay has a pool. But could use some updating on the pool and the rooms. But easy walking to battlefield and shops. The staff was very friendly and made sure our stay was great. Just a cheap place to stay for the night and enjoy the area for visiting.
