It is wonderful to find an old mid-century motel, just past the tourist court era, restored to a habitable level. Cleaner and better kept than almost every 2-star chain hotel. Many old furnishings, but a great bed, great flat-screen, modern climate control with a remote thermostat, wireless, and spotlessly clean. I would've avoided this place without all the great reviews on Tripadvisor, and they are right! Gail, at the front desk, is very helpful as well.
