    We just needed a place to stay for one night. This was convenient. No microwave, so would not like an extended stay, but otherwise or was nice.

    Busy 2 days.

    The check in was ok but it was a little difficult to understand the older man who was working in the office at check-in. The room was nice, clean and I had more towels than the army. The lady who I guess was the house keeping cleaning lady was VERY friend and asked me all the time if I needed any thing at all. There was one thing about the room, there as a little frig, nice big bed, large bathroom but NO MICROWAVE...I would have liked a microwave in the room to reheat things I had left over from the day to eat in the room while I watch the news. First time I've been in a motel with NO microwave. The stay was OK but I'm not sure if I want to use that place again unless I could be sure of a microwave.

    It was ok for just a night.

    The rooms were pretty clean but they had a humidity smell. We were there only a few hours to sleep. It was a quiet location with a few places to eat close by.
