The web site represents this place as a quiet and quaint place. The cottage we stayed in, supposedly their best, is located next to the parking lot of a rowdy biker bar called Lloyd's. We spent two sleepless nights listening to loud music, drunken fighting couples, and screeching tires.
Whe I complained nicely to the owner, he not only failed to apologize, but he blamed me for choosing his inferior motel, and told me my recourse was to stay somewhere else next time. He said that if I had called him, he could have solved the problem - impossible - this is a big, crowded and loud bar with a large crowd of drunken patrons.
We received no housekeeping service during our stay and the place is in fair condition. The pool is fine and they have a ping pong table.
