This is a no frills, small old motel, along one of the car routes used before the Interstate system; but unlike many such motels, this is still being cared for fairly well.

“There are a few quieter rooms in a nook at the back of the parking lot... but parking space there is limited.”

“There are two suites in the back corner with a separate bedroom. A quiet place with more room. However, parking back in there can be dicey.”
