Real cool decor. Very unique. Service was good breakfast was great. The negative reviews seem to all mention a major event like swim team or soccer team selling the place out. If no such event is going on then You won't be disappointed.

On our many road trips this is one of the best hotel/motel we have stayed at. Set back of the main road this is a lovely and quaint motel. Quietly elegant. The staff are extremely professional and friendly. The room was huge with a king bed. Exceptionally clean and well appointed. There was no noticeable noise from anywhere in the...

Overall very nice hotel. The sign needs to be more visible from the busy street and it was hard to find. The hotel is located in close proximity to numerous fast food establisments. The one issue I had was the bed was uncomfortable. Other than that, it is a nice hotel.

Unhappy with incident as mentioned that items were missing on top of desk, but hotel staff claimed never was such in room. Making us like lying or making up such claim over such insignificant things- it's the staff's words against hotel guest's!
