My boyfriend and I stayed at Villa Motel in the late summer of 2012 and came across this hotel because of its fare price for what it had to offer. We arrived close to midnight and called the manager to let him know that we would be checking in 6 hours later than expected. Upon arriving to the lobby, the manager was very nice and warm welcoming and quickly got our room keys and everything else set up. The room was very modest and cozy with a nice big flat screen tv. The bathroom was a decent size (enough room for two!) and was its own room with the big mirror and sink across from it. I found this really convenient because I didn't have to wait to use the mirror to get ready for our day's excursion.
The free continental breakfast was decent. The only thing that was missing were eggs, but the homemade waffles made up for it!
During our 2-day stay, there was a lot of celebration going on in the parking lot but we could not hear it in our room. We were located on the ground floor and slept comfortably as people partied upstairs and outside.
Another note worth mentioning is that whenever I stay at hotels, I leave valuable-looking jewelery and some loose change on the sink counter for the whole day and return to see if the housekeepers would steal it. Nothing was taken or rummaged through our belongings and I am confident that this family-run motel are very hospitable and respectful toward all their guests.
I have recommended this gem of a motel to a lot of my friends because the value of the guest services, room cleanliness and location exceeds my expectations of what I paid for.
