We are a large family, and we had already been turned away from one motel because of no vacancy. It was late, and we were desperate to hurry and find a room. We had never heard of this motel before, but we saw it as we were passing through, so we pulled in. The outside is kind of creepy, but we learned that the owner just bought the motel this year, and has been busy with renovations inside the rooms- hopefully he eventually addresses the outside. When we went in our room we were pleasantly surprised! It was very clean, which is a requirement for us because 2 of our kids usually have to sleep on blankets on the floor. It also had no smell of smoke whatsoever. Which is also a requirement because 2 of our kids have asthma and are allergic to the smell. The room was nicely furnished, and we could tell that there were improvements to it. The mattress looked new, as did the flooring. There are more things that will probably be improved, but for the price, it was well worth it. The owner was very nice and helpful too. We would stay here again if we ever passed through.
