This place was right off the highway so difficult to get to other places. We were able to go on back roads to get around. It looks like an old fashioned motel. Did not want to be on first floor being women traveling alone, but there were no elevators. Breakfast was available and decent considering how small the area. We... More

you can hear the traffic on 10 from your room, but the place was clean, and affordable. I didn't not eat breakfast there, or use any amenities, just went to bed, if that is all you are looking to do, it should serve you well.

This place was too expensive for what it had. The bathroom and shower was way too small. The buffet was terrible. Those windows should be double paned, we heard the traffic all night.

We arrived a couple hours before check-in and only had to wait 10 minutes and our rooms were ready, without paying anything additional. The desk clerk was very nice. The rooms were clean and comfortable. No issues.
