Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review here on TripAdvisor. I am sorry to hear you had some issues during your stay with us. I do wish you had let us know about some of these things during your stay as we may have been able to remedy some of them. Thank you for staying with us.

We have stayed here before and definitely would stay again. The beds we're comfortable, the water pressure and shower were great! The people at the front desk we're very nice when we checked in and out. The price was reasonable and they allow pets. Just what we needed!

Is there a guest laundry on the premises or in the area?
Sorry don't know as we didn't require laundry facilities. But the motel's location is central to lots of restaurants and other commercial places.

"Very little difference in the rooms. The middle rooms are directly across from the outdoor pool."
"Hotel is built with parking lot in the center, so I suspect most rooms the same."
"We had the average double queen beds.. just fine."
"The very back portion has the most recently renovated rooms BUT I have NEVER been disappointed"
US$ 79 - US$ 102 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
