          Older hotel, price reflected amenities. Nice kid checked us in and took us to our room and made sure we had what we needed. They had a large group (traveling together) come in and they accommodated their bar-b-q party. Seemed like very nice people.

          yes we are a one story motel, where you park your vehicle directly in front on your room. There is a small step up to the side walk, about 6 inches and then another upon entering your room, again about 6 inches.
