Contrary to the previous reveiws, we did not find this motel to be as nice as the rest of the folks seem to. We had a room with two beds, and it sure didn't look like the photo on the Website, which makes the room look very spacious. It was not spacious. All the furniture was very close together and there was nowhere to put your suitcase. We had to step over things once we put our suitcases on the floor and tried to unpack. The bathroom was incredibly small and dimly lit and had no amenities. The room itself was poorly lit. There was no place to sit for comfortably reading a book. As I recall, it was clean. It has easy access because you could just pull your car right up to the door. There was a small breakfast in the morning--nothing special. There was no internet connection. You have to go to the lobby to use your computer, and sometimes it's closed. My husband was about to walk into the lobby to use his computer, and the owner saw him coming, but left and locked the door anyway. The only reason we stayed here is that most of the inns and motels have 2nd stories, and I needed one with just one story. Otherwise, I would have made a different choice. It was quiet, though.
