I was in the area on business for a few weeks and chose this motel for location and price. I travel with my business partner and my dog so it is important that i get a pet friendly motel. From day one we felt as though we were being parented with the female owner going so far as to make us either close the window or turn the fan off. We were accused of leaving the dog in the room alone on the very first day, because we had the Do Not Disturb sign on the door. When we informed them that the dog was with us the entire day, they apologized and said they had "assumed" that is why we put the sign up, rather than asking or not assuming. Things stayed tense until we finally asked them to let us know if they wanted us to leave, but if they didn't then they needed to lighten up. Eddie apologized, but Val seemed very unwelcoming. If you don't have a pet, the experience may be a very different one than we had. The rooms were very nice... though I would have loved to return my towels in the afternoon and run the fan with the window open... but I guess that's not part of the hospitality offered. Also, there was a lot of "activity" going on in the area where the owner and his family all lived. The kids ran back and forth late and played basketball early, which is fine, but if you have to be to work early, get an end room so you can sleep.
