Budget motel with clean comfortable rooms, some with fridges and microwaves, some with full size kitchenettes. All rooms have color cable TV with 32 channels. Rooms are available on a nightly, weekly or monthly basis. The motel is located on the east side of town, one block from the main drag (2nd Street) and close to Downtown.
