Excellent customer service. Rooms was great. Desk went above and beyond to find a room for us on main floor. My mom is 88 years and needed 1st floor room. Would definitely return.

Very nice place and very affordable. The staff was more than friendly and there was plenty of people working which is rare at most motels. The pool was very clean and big. The exterior was super clean!!!! Room was nice and the restaurant was very good.
