The place appeared to be acceptable regarding cleanliness, but the smell. The smell was not enjoyable or tolerable. The sheets were clean, so I slept with my head under the covers so I didn't have the smell all night. Yes, it is an older motel, and I really can't tell you what the smell was - probably just really old...

The owners were very accommodating when I showed up a day late. Had a situation at home and could not leave in the day we were supposed to. They have me nothing but calming words. The room was absolutely beautiful. The beds and decor were more of what u would expect from a high end hotel. The place was so...

Very welcoming staff. Room was clean and had a nice refrigerator in it. Bathroom didn't have its own heat source so you had to leave the door open. Since it's November you need to do this. Only bad thing was a loud neighbor.

Very nice place, enjoyed our stay there. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. Staff was friendly. Good parking right in place. Very close to parkway. Bathroom was clean. Room was a nice size, had a little table to eat at. Was easy to bring your food back to the place. Little refrigerator and microwave.
