I had read the reviews on Trip Advisor and had high hopes for this motel. As a former local returning to visit my ailing mom, I booked for 8 nights, believing I had found a gem in terms of price and location. When I arrived my room had a really musty smell, and I called and visited the front desk to request a change. There appeared to be a leak around the sink that may have been a cause and told the staff this. I took literally days and numerous phone calls and visits to the front desk for me to get any response, which basically was to live with it or leave. Only by continuing complaints did I finally secure a room change on maybe the 5th night. The conversation with the owner revolved around how deeply he cared for his business, but I have to say you could have fooled me given how many days and requests it took to even get him on the phone!
Walls were paper thin, meaning that ALL sounds (if you get my drift) day and night permeated through, and on numerous occasions I was kept awake by late night arrivals and early morning departures. Having said this the location is spectacular. You must prepared to deal with the less than attentive staff and owner, and noisy living accommodations if you want to take advantage of the location and price. It was clearly a take it or leave it proposition, cloaked in platitudes about how well this place is looked after. I definitely would not recommend or return to this motel.
