The motel is older than expected. The pool closes at 6 p.m. even on a hot summer day (101 degrees). The staff is not helpful if you have special needs (handicapped). The a/c is in bedroom only. The living room is hot. Not enough towels in the bathroom. For 3 people we had 2 towels, 2 washcloths. No breakfast that I was aware of. The staff was too busy getting me to sign a non smoking waiver to explain if there was any breakfast served. Staff was overly critical about everything and anything. No help with luggage even if handicapped. Handicapped parking was at opposite end of hotel from the room which made the trips (5) difficult with luggage and special medical needs. What I though would be a wonderful vacation turned out to be mediocre. I would never stay here again. I was willing to pay for someone to help with luggage, etc., but was told everyone had a bad back. I can understand why this hotel was rated only 2 stars by AAA. It lacks many amenities and costs just as much as a 3 star or 4 star hotel.
