The property is certainly old, however I had no complaints. People often act like they should get 5 star treatment at a hotel that they are paying $50 a night for. When I arrived early they had my room ready, I was waiting on my guest so I went and changed into my trunks. The pool was empty and I had it all to myself, so I enjoyed the quiet in the deep end for close to 2 hours. The pool was clean and water was clear.
After my guest arrived and we went to the room, it was clean, the TV is the older style not flat screens but they worked fine. My only real complaint would be that the toilet was sluggish to flush (not uncommon at a motel) and the shower heads seemed rather low on the wall but this is also something that is common in an older property.
One of the more important things to me at a motel is the linens. I can say that the lines on our beds were clean, fresh, and crisp. You could tell that they had just been washed.
The breakfast was simple but covered the necessities and everything was fresh. All the pastries and cereal was in individual servings which I like because that means that it's fresh. The milk was actually in a little fridge type thing and not poured in a canter everyday which made me feel it was safe to use.
Although we did connect to the wifi it could be tricky to get a solid connection but we did connect.
The 2 shifts of staff that I dealt with were both very friendly and helpful.
