We stayed in the motel units, not the hotel, although the reception desk is the same. I think there must be a big difference as we were not impressed at all with the motel units. They were probably built in the 1950s and not much has been updated since. That has a certain charm, and I must admit the bed was comfortable, but when you have a big kitchen as they had in the 1950s, you expect a few amenities … like pots! To give the staff their due, they did mount an extensive search for a pot and a strainer so I could cook spaghetti. I tagged along and we did eventually find them … but really, when you advertise an equipped kitchen, shouldn’t there at least be a pot in the kitchen? The other thing that would have been nice is wifi (it was available in the lobby of the hotel which is separate from the motel units). However, for an overnight stay you could do a lot worse, and the motel units were significantly cheaper than the hotel rooms.
