“Not a place you would want to stay at”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

This motel is cheap, and "the best deal in town" but you not only get what you pay for, you get a carpet you don't want to walk on, an old caved in bedsprings and mattress, and although the sheets smell clean, they are old too. Didn't want to walk on the floor because the old carpet is fillty and worn out, so we put the bedspread on the floor; the shower was stained and dirty, so we felt creepy about taking a shower there, and worried about sleeping in the beds. We were too tired to look elsewhere, and we should have turned it down when we went in. Needs SERIOUS updating, like maybe with a bulldozer. Spend 20-30 extra bucks and stay somewhere you can get a goods night sleep at. It doesn't pay to be cheap! Sorry to slanderize a business, but really, you can't expect people to stay in something so deplorable.I have to stay the staff was friendly, and the location was convenient.

Room Tip: stay somewhere else. Go to Petra's mediterranean for some good greek food

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2011

Pulling up to the motel it was a little sketchy but we checked in anyway. The lady at the desk was very friendly and welcoming as if it was her own home. We got into our room thinking that it would have 2 beds but to find out it had 3 beds. The value is great only $49 for 2 people and a pet. The property is also off the main street to where you dont hear the trains but the walk to town is short and very nice. This is a great charming motel almost as if you were in a cabin. Love this motel will stay here again.
