Great place to stay was so cozy and warm and relaxing, fast service and friendly staff, one thing we didn’t like was the internet kept cutting out and not working, but over all would go back and stay there again

My stay in the off season was restful & quiet. I loved the bright clean bathroom and parking outside my door. Bed was comfortable.

6/10 Good

Motel is dated with some upgrades. Could use a little more work. Easy access to room with parking outside the door. T.V. is small and not easy to view from the beds. Would do better on the wall across from the beds and 3 sizes larger.
