The motel is cute and updated plus the price is reasonable. What wasn't reasonable was being woken at 7AM from a stupid firehorn! Also the place was not as clean as it should have been considering COVID is an issue and the packaged soap was in pieces making it difficult to use in the shower.

I wish I could give this motel 4 or 5 stars. It was clean. It was comfortable. Unfortunately, it was not restful. And for some reasons that were beyond the control of the motel. 1. The clock alarm went off at midnight. I couldn’t even figure out how to shut it off and had to pull the plug. 2. Our drunken neighbors were up partying until 4 am. From 2 until 4 pm I swear they were wrestling in their room since they were banging off the walls. 3. At 5:15 am they smoke detector went off and would not stop until my husband removed the battery. Again, it was clean. It was just a horrible experience for us.
