Exceptional 10.0
Love this place!
For the money.. it was perfect! Great location, awesome staff! Love the family owned environment. Will be my go to place from now on.

Poor 2.0
This motel was gross. Smelled like spray paint, was very dirty and rundown, the fire alarm started chirping at 3:30 am due to low batteries. Sketchy people around, stains on the sheets and pillowcases, dirty carpet, hair and dust left around. We would never stay here again. The only plus was the location and the friendliness of the man who checked us in

Fair 4.0
Dirty, as in not cleaned. Bed was horrible, and I'm not picky at all (I like hard beds, and this was like sleeping on a wood board). You can totally get another place that isn't filthy for the same price or a little more, even on a busy last minute trip.

Fair 4.0
Only good for its location
Room is extremely small. when showing, had to wait more than 10min to have hot water. In boom heater not working at all, cold at night. Bedroom night light can't be turned off, can't sleep with a night light on! Curtains too tHin as well, think curtains only for decorations, not able to pull to cover the full width of window! It's only good for its location.
