For a motel, this was an excellent value. The office staff could not have been more friendly or accommodating.

Booked on line, let management know we were traveling with a little dog. When we arrived we were greeted by the manager. He informed us that there was a problem with the room we had booked,so he was upgrading us up to a larger room at no additional cost. He then promptly asked if our dog had any allergies to...

All rooms have nice TV's, microwaves, coffee makers plenty of outlets and room darkening curtains. Only 2 floors so have to walk up stairs and all this is on their website. No hidden fees everything explained so no one should be in shock or disappointed when you go there.
