Motel is on a busy street but did not hear the noise in the room. Signs posted in the rooms not to do this or that. Also one telling us not to take the tissue box. Beds were nice. Room decent size. Good for one night stay. Easy drive to the terminal.

Convenient location, good price, clean, kitchenettes, next to highway but one that's not noisy at night. Mom and pop operation, pleasant folks. Gave a seniors discount. Had to ask for it, but maybe because we look so young....

This is a very basic, cheap motel. The building is old but the rooms have been renovated. Thankfully it looks better on the inside than the outside.The beds are decent. The bathrooms are very bright and hot water is plentiful.

Hello, are you petfriendly for our 2 older very small clean well behaved dogs?
"Ground floor rooms have a small backyard patio"
"Ask for a room on the back of the motel, away from the busy road."
"Ground floor (obviously) if you want the deck and garden."
"Try to get a room on the west side of the motel away from the road. At least one of the upstairs rooms in the locked corridor has a strong mold smell."
"Upstairs rooom would be more insulated from road noise than downstairs rooms. Downstairs rooms have small courtyard outside in the garden - would be nice for a drink"
$72 - $84 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
