Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
What I liked the most was how quiet the place is and the outstanding view. This is a very reasonable priced motel and it is to be expected to have a modest room. My overall stay there was very pleasant and the management and staff are very friendly.

Hotel room smelled of old smoke. It was sprayed with lysol to mask smell. We had to open all windows and doors as the smell of lysol was strong. Would not stay here again.
