OK, this is basically just likie a circa 1950's mom and pop American motel. Simple decor and furnishings. Large potted plants on the grounds. Rocking chairs on the walkway outside each room. Clean, even in the carpeted corners of the room, although the shower tile was stained. Quiet, except for the street noise, which wasn't enough to bother me. Nothing fancy.
The housekeeping is minimal. I stayed for 3 nights, and the best I could tell they did each day was rinse out the coffee pot, change the towels, replace the packet of shampoo that I used, and emptied the trash. They didn't make the bed.
The wireless that the motel advertises doesn't work. Neither I, nor the other guests that I talked to about it, said they could connect to the Net. I had to hook into the data port on the telephone and accessed my own AOL dialup.
Having the refrigerator and microwave was nice. The refrigerator was about twice the size of a typical hotel mini-bar fridge.
Overall, I liked the place. It had a comfortable, safe, homey feel. Would I stay here again? I don't know. Having high speed internet is priority for me. If they got the internet working, I would for sure stay here again. For the price, it was a good find.
