We had a jetted tub with a hand held shower head. The furniture was old and not very clean. There were ants in the bathroom and the paint... More

The room was basic, clean, and covered all our needs. It was situated at the back of the property and was quiet. Breakfast was excellent in the morning and the... More

I see some bad reviews for this place but we had no such issues. We were in room 29 which is one of the top floor rooms on the north side annex. It was reasonably quiet. We stayed in August -so middle of summer - and the room was nice and cool. We used the ceiling fan and had the... More

Our room was wonderful! We didn't hear any traffic, there was a fireplace, a couch, and it was very spacious. The breakfast was wonderful, as were the staff. We will definitely stay here again! They were pet friendly . There is great shopping in walking distance as well as shops right outside of the motel. We walked to get a... More

Parking lot lights shown through the window all night. Even through the (darkening shades). Terrible sleep. Use to have a garden but not now. No charm. On main street. Downtown. Wasted stay. Bad memory.
