Looks can be deceiving. Clean and quiet on the outside and well maintained yard area. The first clue for our stay should have been the scent of the office. The smell of cat urine. If we hadn't been driving all day we would have gone some place else. The cleanliness of the rooms was very unacceptable. When we first entered...

Room (#4) was clean, bed (king) very comfortable for us. We started out in #5, but upstairs had small, active, yippy/squalling (I kid you not!) dogs that got yelled at over blaring TV. We are fairly tolerant, but this just wasn't going to work. The young couple managing the place didn't give any trouble when we asked to be moved....

First let me clarify the previous post, the owners are not the young couple. Their mom is the owner. HWY noise can be drowned out by running the AC. I was there for a few days along with other people, so we had a few rooms. I only had the opportunity to see two rooms. The young couple and staff...

This motel is nicer on the inside than the outside--the room was better than I expected. Appreciated the microwave and mini-fridge. Owners are a very sweet young couple.
