The management and staff are very courteous and accommodating. All staff we encountered, including maintenance and hospitality greeted us. Ruben was especially warm and personable as was our bartender this evening.

Nice and clean. Staff very helpful. Daughter is in a wheelchair and while the handicapped rooms weren't available they made sure to put us on the first floor and the room was large enough for her to maneuver around in with no problem. With the exception of the last day we were very pleased with the breakfast etc. The motel...

Room was very clean we stayed in 115. The A/C was too loud. The parking lot is big but we are across the street from the bar in the back. We drove up late and a bunch of drunks were arguing and walking around the lot. It is pointless to have a 'security' camera with weirdos like this hanging around....

Clean and big enough rooms. The check in and out were real good. Even though was packed was quick and easy. Hospitality is clearly there. Breakfast area rather small but the food is to be expected as quality and portions. Will be back for sure.
