Check in was with a phone call from the motel saying the room # we would be staying in and the key would be in the room. It was., no problem there, but the room itself, although fairly clean had peeling wall paper and a tub with rust problems. There a phone # posted on the office door(the office was empty and locked), the # was to call if we had a problem. We did not see an employee during our stay

The only good thing was air conditioning. No room service, no fresh towels, room is very out dated, doors don't work, windows hard to open,. Very dirty site around our room. Being our 40th anniversary, this was not what your pics showed. I would bot recommend this week end party hole. Not worth the $345.
