“Very good motel:”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Just stay for one night. This place is a gem. Very nice room and very, very reasonable rates. Couldn't see anything wrong with the place. Seem to an family own motel and are very nice and helpful. Nobody could go wrong staying here.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

It's not a 5 star Hotel but it was clean. I rented 2 rooms and both was very clean. The beds was comfy. Flat Screen T.V. That was nice. Had everything we needed a mini fridge that worked great, mini coffee pot, microwave, iron. Couple of things I didn't care for for bathroom is very very small. Shower head worked great. I kept having to put sheet back up on bed because they use flat sheets instead of fitted. . Not far from other places to eat also. Overall it was nice and I will stay again.
