Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Good bed But not worth the price
Check in was outside in the rain. Picture (better) did not represent the actual motel (worse). Bugs were in the sink. Used washcloth on floor of shower. Used soap and shampoo left in shower. Bathroom window barely locked shut. Curtains were in poor shape. Bedspread had a stain. Bed was good.

The motel doesn’t match the picture provide online as a accurate landmark. The room wasn’t wiped down or swept. Dirty stained pillow cases were used on pillows on the bed and there were crumbs of dirt all over top blanket of bedding. The 1 staff member that I spoke with when I checked in was nice but then didn’t have time for me at checkout. Im unhappy with my quick stay.

Keep on looking.
The motel is nothing like the pictures at For one thing there is NO POOL as shown in the pictures, and it is NOT a two story place as shown in the cover photo either. The motel blames this on but I am sure they could fix it if they wanted, but a pool will pull more people in. There was a pool there about 15 years ago so that picture is that old. Outside our room were nasty chairs and cigarette butts everywhere, above the chairs was posted a sign designating the area as a "smoke free" area (that's our room window next to the fire extinguisher) but the bucket used for cigarette butts showed that this was the common smoking area for the people LIVING THERE IN THE ROOMS. They had to take a smoke break at 3 AM and sit in front of our room window and talk. The picture of the lawn is where the pool was 15 years ago, compare that to the picture in the listing. Inside the room was not much better, very run down and not the cleanest. When I approached the desk in the morning the "co-manager" (can we say co-owner?) was very surprised at my complaints and said she would discuss it with the other manager. She did call later and said they would give me a credit of $20.00 on my $72.00 bill which they did, but it is quite obvious that this is the general condition of the place so they are choosing to turn a blind eye on the issues.

Very old motel that needs a make over. Our room was not ready when we arrived and were told it would be in 30 minutes, it was ready in over an hour and had a very musty old smell. We had two rooms and this was one level above camping to say the least. Only positive was the folks at the front desk were nice.
