Unique and Fun!
How do you describe the best retro/modern motel in the South? So reminiscent of the classic hotels/motels of the 60’s! Room was nostalgic but also modern with all the amenities I’m used to on the road. Free RC Cola’s and Moonpies are brilliant marketing! Jovena on the desk is a treasure! I’ll be back!
