          I'm sorry. I thought you meant the caverns themselves. The motel was very nice and clean! :)
          Greetings to everybody. I am debating whether to book a room in the M^ or not - the reviews are so darn mixed. What can the hotel staff say about the room condition - cleanliness, smell etc (have you been recently renovated?) and about the 'shady characters' in the hallways?
