Although the staff was friendly and tried to be accommodating we are sorry to say we cannot recommend this motel to anyone. After reading reviews prior to making our reservation we were prepared for the citrus smell others had mentioned. Yes, it's still there and permeates the entire motel. But that smell can't compare at all to the smell we encountered in room 108. The musty/moldy smell was so strong we were afraid to breath. We thought that turning the AC down low and flipping on the bathroom fan while we went to lunch might help but when we returned the smell was worse. Upon inspecting the AC unit we saw what appeared to be black mold buildup in the unit itself, which was blowing straight into our room. We requested a new room and had to take the only room available...a smoking room...which, surprisingly enough, smelled much better. They also seem to have a cricket problem. My father staying in another room woke to find two crickets in his bathroom sink. There were several in the south stairwell and one was seen under our breakfast table. Overall our stay was not a good experience.
