This older property is decorated with an eclectic mix of items. An enthusiastic, friendly young couple who live on site with their two young children provide personal service not usually seen in a motel chain. We stayed at this well located downtown motel just before Christmas. We managed to leave a Kindle e-reader and a camera battery charger behind in the room. We were promptly contacted by the wife in this husband-wife management team who went out of her way to arrange shipment the day before Christmas to a relative further south who we would be visiting. Her kindness and generosity in getting these two items (whose absence would have spoiled the rest of our trip) to us promptly was very much appreciated and was indicative of the personal care these attentive hosts take of their guests.
We also enjoyed a free beer and snacks in the evening in the homey lobby and met some interesting travelers during our too brief stay. We have never experienced such an amenity before in a modestly priced motel chain. In fact, the word "chain" is totally inapt when we think back to the nice memory we have of this lodging.
