I made a reservation at this motel, based on the positive reviews. When I checked in I made a request to the young man who happened to be working at the desk at the time (obviously his family run the place) to get a second floor room. No problem, he gave me the key and when I got to the...

The "free breakfast" was store bought pastries that sat out all day. The pool was nice and clean and felt good. Overall, I had a decent time and would recommend it...

I probably would stay here again only for the price...

Parking lot is well-lit, safe and secure. Very quiet here, no wildness anywhere on the premises. A truly great value for adults and seniors. Being able to cook in your own...

First off I'm not sure where these drunks and hoes are these other reviews speak of I have had no problems since I arrived in December. This motel has nice rooms for a good price, heated pool and free ice. Owners are easy to get along with and very friendly. I've been here for a month and I love it....
