While the property may not be the most stylish the rooms are huge and clean. The pool is great and you get a small kitchen! The location is great and the price is even better. This is my favorite budget hotel for TC trips!

Nice. Beautiful area. Very spacious rooms. Pet friendly. Limited parking. Only negative is the rooms could use some updating but the room was very clean. Exterior of the motel is adorable. Plan to return again next year.
