    This traditional outdoor corridor motel has been beautifully renovated. The artistic wooden railing and the hanging pots of fuchsias and urns of other varieties make it very visually appealing. There is lots of grassy space for lawn games, picnics and lounging. The large hot tub...More

    Discovery is off the busy center just enough to avoid the stress. Library is next door. Helpful staff, standard but comfortable rooms. No computers; the office will print your boarding pass. No elevators to 2nd floor. Other than the stairs, we enjoyed our stay.
