Motel is centrally located, but highway noise at night can be disturbing. Beds are excellent, but suites could use improved maintenance. The floor lamp at the bedside failed to light and the bathroom plug did not work for our own hairdryer. The deadbolt on the door to the exterior of the suite did not work to unlock from the outside. We had to go inside through the foyer and use the door in the hallway to enter our suite. The rooms did not have extra pillows or boxed tissues. The continental breakfast was decent considering COVID protocols. Front desk staff were attentive to the deficiencies.

Friendly owners/management, decent continental breakfast, close to small-town services. The facility is outdated and could stand some upgrades but otherwise is pretty OK for a modest place to spend a couple of days.

I don't have anything positive to say about this property. It's dirty smells and I would not stay again. It is being completely neglected.

I was there with my husband who has cognitive issues that required help from the owner/manager. I felt so secure with the knowledge that the help would be there any time it was required.
