We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of this motel. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were magnificent, with walk in shower and granite counter tops. Also they had SOFT WATER! Very unusual for this area. Only two down sides -- the WIFI wasn't reliable and we couldn't turn the AC below 68 degrees. The room stay at 74 degrees all night long. I mentioned this when we checked out.
I think the general manager must be reading these reviews as we didn't have any problems with the staff. I peaked into the spa and the receptionist insisted on showing me the whole layout. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. The prices she quoted me were a lot lower than I expected. I believe the special was $25 for an hour massage or an hour facial. Then again, with my memory, it may have been $35. Either way, I've never encountered better rates! If we hadn't been on our way to the state fair, I would have booked one of each.
We ate two meals in the restaurant. Their BBQ ribs, loaded baked potatoe, and succotash were done to perfection. I was pleased with the service. In fact, I left a bigger tip than normal. Forgot to mention the meal was only $10 for the half rack of ribs plus two sides. They must have received their liquor license as we were offered wine with our meal.
