This motel is a little difficult to find, we drove by it and had to backtrack when getting off the freeway. It is located behind you when you get off the freeway and there are no signs directing you. Room was clean and comfy, but a strange smell in the hallways. We suspect that the owners live on the property because of the strong scent of ethnic cooking lingers in the hallways. Not necessarily an unpleasant smell, but strange for a motel. Had difficulty connecting to the wifi, but the breakfast was decent and well stocked. Motel also has a pool, but we did not use it. Front desk clerks were friendly and accommodating. Lobby and rooms are a little dated, but clean.
