Clean unit. Manager was friendly. Gave us a pint of milk. Spacious rooms with a kitchenette. Liked the TV selection and there was just one remote to operate. We were on the end unit and there was a lot of road noise in the morning.

Tourist Court Motel is pretty small but very nice. Plenty of room for 3 people in our room. The room was very clean and tidy. Lots of nice big towels in the bathroom. Reasonably priced. Owner was friendly and very helpful. I would be happy to stay again.

No curtains on most windows.
