The pros: It's quiet, clean, and has comfortable beds. It's a great location, there is a restaurant right next door, and the AC worked great. Our room had a decent sized fridge, not one of those tiny micro-fridges. The cons: our room didn't have a microwave, and they don't have free breakfast. Overall, it's a great place to stay, especially... More

Our room was very clean and inviting. The air conditioner was off when we came in, but it cooled down quickly. Very comfortable beds, nice hot shower and super-quiet. I mention the quiet because the motel is situated right on the street, and I expected noise. Had a great nights sleep.

The motel room had everything needed-comfortable bed, amazingly clean, working refrigerator and A/C. Barbecue area, coin laundry and restaurant all on premises. Price was right. Jimmy and Randy were friendly and helpful. I would stay again.

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights. It has an excellent location close to several excellent restaurants and recreational activities. The motel is run by two brothers who were friendly, and very helpful. Even provided us with two brand new hairdryers for the rooms. The rooms themselves are adequate, not luxurious., but they were comfortable. The TV worked well... More

Nice older motel. Clean friendly and convenient. I would stay again if in the area. Good dollar value. Couple restaurants close by. Comfortable king size bed. Do not expect the Hilton but a good place to stay. Did not make reservations but still no problem.

The folks were friendly. The outside looked touched up but the inside could use some work. The non smoking room smelled of stale heavy smoke. So maybe not smoking in the last couple years. The bed was lumpy. The floor kinda grimmy.

The room you stayed in has been a non-smoking room since the day we opened. Apparently a previous guest was inconsiderate and smoked in the room. Had we been made aware there was an issue, we would have done the right thing and moved you to another room immediately. More

We find the people at this motel to be so friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but are very clean and comfortable. We always look forward to returning here for a few days while in the area for hiking, biking, and kayaking.

Basic motel and not too fancy. Price was a little high. Room that I got was clean. No problems with linens or towels. Security lock on door but no security chain. Mini-fridge but no microwave. Limited number of outlets in room. Had to pull away the bed from the wall to find one. Small, older style television.
