Travelled with partner
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The location is great but everything else about the motel is disappointing. It’s old and badly in need of maintenance. Little to no effort has been put into renovations or basic upkeep. The room was cold when we arrived and when the heat finally kicked in it was uncomfortably warm. The exterior doors do little to keep out any noise. If the owners would put a little money into renovations, this could be a great spot.
