We arrived at this pretty, not large motel. The desk clerk was not very happy to see us, though. We were clearly interrupting her reading. That was a big disappointment and a worry. I want people to be happy to see me when I am giving them my money! But after a long trip, we decided to take a room at least for the night.
The room was in the courtyard of a very inviting pool area. Nice landscaping, plenty of attractive pool side furniture. The room itself was spacious, had microwave and refrigerator. The décor was low key and calming. Nice window treatments without fabric. I like that. The shower was really nice, like a spa, natural colored tiles, glass panel. No shower curtain to worry about, and we all know how grody they get! Room very clean. Bed linens were fresh and did not smell like tobacco smoke as they often do. Downside, the lighting was very dim.
The beds were firm, I was at first put off by that, but slept very well for the entire stay.
The breakfast was adequate, but skip the "eggs".
Everyone else, succeeding desk clerks, maintenance, housekeeping, breakfast room lady so pleasant and helpful. Always had a greeting and a smile. No request was too much.
We were treated very well in a very nice place.
