4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The room was small but very clean and cute. Our room had a mini fridge and microwave. Again not much space but a very pleasant place to stay. It was a nice quiet area very close to old town historic park. The only negative thing I must say is that the room only had two outlets, one in the restroom... More

The entire stay was perfect. The staff was great and the rooms were clean and well kept. Continental breakfast, coffee, tea and cold water were readily available for guests. The motel is near popular attractions, the train and shuttle and especially, Old Town. There are many restaurants, department stores, etc. within walking distance.
