Very clean, great management/owners were very polite and friendly. Make sure to try out delicious pancake House for breakfast! Very good huevos rancheros and "pigs in blanket" pancakes. Restaurant staff were A+!

This motel is very nice and clean. The breakfast that comes with the room was great. Order off the menu breakfast not a continental breakfast. I had the Huevos Rancheros with both red and green chile. Great breakfast and great service too.
