The check in agent was a lovely woman who got us checked in within minutes. They gave a preference of either in the building or out, we chose out. Noticed lots of dogs but didn't hear any. The rooms were comfortable & we requested a late check out, which they were luckily able to accommodate as it wasn't very busy....

Room was OK and the bed was comfortable enough. got a discount on a basic breakfast in the attached restaurant the next morning. The room was large and a reasonable price. The reception area seems to be under renovations If you just want a basic room this place is fine.

Stayed there early January, the off season. Reasonably priced. Good sized rooms. No complaints about cleanliness or noise. Restaurant at the front. Large parking lot. Staff was friendly and efficient. Will stay here again

After a two weeks stay at this place, I am happy to say that it has been a good experience. There is a friendly atmosphere both in the reception and dining room. When I eat breakfast at 6:00 in the morning, and the first back no earlier than 20:00 in the evening, it is not much I have worn on...

This is an old motel, but has been lovingly updated, the rooms are clean and fresh, the bathrooms have been redone. They have a nice breakfast area and a conference room. The staff were terrific and the owners were constantly working around the parking lot sealing cracks. This is a nice area to tour and I would definitely recommend you...

From the check in method to the room and decor, this hotel is way past due for an update. The check in didn't go so well, the lady was actually quite rude when all I asked was if a room was available for early check in due to a wedding we were attending. The interior of our room is quite...

I was in town with a colleague for a conference and was assigned to this motel. Upon entering the lobby I noticed how quaint it was, like going to Grandma's house. The front desk staff person was very nice. My room had wood flooring but my colleague's had carpet. I preferred the wood flooring. Both rooms came with a mini...

King size bed could use a memory foam topper... gosh it was hard. LOL Quiet halls for a busy weekend. Small indoor pool and whirlpool were over chlorinated but gave us a chance to get a swim in on an overcast and rainy day. The on-site restaurant is handy.

“Ask for a room that connects to the corridor from the inside , not a room off the street. The inside one's are a bit nicer.”

“Families with children should ask for a room in the section with the pool. The quietest rooms are in the back in sections not connected to the pool.”
