A really pretty motel but to get in the door, one must walk right through a cloud of cigarette smoke. The hotel is smoke-free inside but designates the entry as a smoking area so on both sides of the entry door are smokers puffing away. What good is a non-smoking room if guests and their luggage reek of smoke after being forced to walk through a cigarette smoke cloud just to get in? Every time we exited or entered, scruffy smokers glaring at us stood within 5 feet of the door so there was no way to escape the stench.
Did you look at the pretty pictures of the motel on the web site? See the pretty blue water in the pool? Forget it. It's closed most of the year! Call ahead if you have kids because they're in for a disappointment except for mid-summer months when the pool reopens. You'll have no warning from the hotel of the pool closure ahead of your stay, regardless of their ad promises.
On the positive side, there is minimal creaking of the floors above when other residents are walking above and no hallway noise unless children are really having fun in the hallway itself. The breakfast buffet had 2 waffle machines, something rarely found in other motels! Coffee is always available in the lobby as well as in-room coffee and a refrigerator I'd not expected.
If I weren't a swimmer and didn't hate to stink of cigarette smoke, I'd stay here anytime but...
