The front desk folks were very courteous and helpful to weary travelers.
My room (245) appeared to be clean and fresh, yet bare feet felt the floor carpets needed more attention than just a vacuuming. The bathroom was nice and best of all, had good shower pressure and plenty of hot water. The heater worked well in increments, not too hot or too cold. The WiFi was Great.
Breakfast was good, as they have hot items (scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns, and my favorite Biscuits & Gravy) on the weekends. Other Travel Websites (Expedia, Travelocity, Hotels.com, etc) really should update their descriptor websites of this property, as the 'TORO Bar & Grill' in the lobby is defunct, so the space is used for receptions and breakfast bar.
It was December when I was there, so the grounds were nowhere near the beautiful photos on their website, that was to be expected, however the trees and bushes were in great need of a horticulturist's attention. The Jacuzzi was closed for the season, since it was outside.
They are pet friendly, yet my room didn't smell like it.

I paid $55 which is pretty inexpensive but this place probably falls more in the $35 to $45 range. If just need a cheap place to stay for one night I suppose it works but I don't think I'll be coming back

This is a nice, clean motel with friendly staff and a nice breakfast. It's an older motel but is well kept and comfortable. Price was very reasonable and I would stay there again.
