Location was great. This motel was old and had no AC. I had to walk around and find someone to help me check inn. The young lady was in the bar and not at the front desk. Had to find her again when checking out. We were not happy at all.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The first room we were first assigned to was not ready for us. The room was so warm even after turning down to heat. We use the free standing electric fan, it was dirty. The TV is dusty. The curtain is dirty. The electric kettle was not descaled. The bathtub was clogged. The beds and pillow seem clean. Then, we were moved to a different room, it was a smidge of improvement due to the bathtub not clogged and the fan and curtain seem clean. But, the chairs and the lamp in the room are stained/dirty. The place is old and it shows. I am so glad I brought my own sanitizing wipes to wipe down the doorknobs, light switches, fridge handle and bedside table. The view is awesome though, and is a walking distance to a lot of shops and places to get food.
