I've been to many hotels and motels. This place place is wonderful for long stays. Great location, full kitchen, pool, laundry room. Friendly staff. What else could you want? I even had a Jacuzzi by my bed

We read the reviews and had a good feeling about this one. From the outside it looked like an ordinary motel. I was not expecting the rooms to be so nicely done. The outside is nicely kept with a pool. The inside was very nicely styled. We had a two bedroom. King suite with jacuzzi upstairs. Standard bed downstairs. Three flatscreen tv's. If staying for a week you have a kitchen and living room area. Spacious closets

Great place to stay! We had 4 adults and 1 child, so the layout of the suite was perfect. One couple had the main floor room and the couple with the child had the upper room with 2 beds. Super clean room. It was very quiet too. We will certainly stay there again!

We had two couples in one two bedroom unit and it was very clean. Management was very nice and had great suggestions for the area. During high traffics hours it can be tough to get across the road to head south. Didn't hear any road noise at night. They have a grill and table area. Three tv's. Bathroom a little small but price was very nice. In a very good location to get to area attractions.

I recently spent two nights at this Inn. It was great having a kitchen available and dogs are welcome for a fee. The room was very clean although the bathroom was quite small. Bed was comfortable. The location is on a main highway so it is easy to go places from there. Right next to a Walgreens which was also handy. Difficult to turn left from the parking lot but there is a light if you turn right into Walgreens. Bikes available gratis. Wifi signal was very good and free

Room Tip: Probably away from the hwy although we were next to it and noise was minimal
