Pros: Centrally located, clean bathrooms, offer a decent breakfast but a more varied selection of fruit would be nice, large rooms, ample storage, pool.
Cons: Musty smell as soon as you walk into the motel. Rooms smell extremely musty. I stayed in room 146 (my Mom stayed in room 142 which smelled much less musty). Had to purchase an air freshener and keep the a/c running constantly in an attempt to make it less damp and more breathable. Bedding felt damp. I think the owners need to lay on the beds as the mattresses need updating for the king size beds; decor needs updating. My room was located next to an entrance at the back of the building so I heard the exit door slamming through the night and early morning. Bathroom towels were not quality. Shower curtain in room 142 allows water to escape all over the floor because it is too short.
All in all just an ok place to stay. A bit pricey for the quality of the rooms.
