The Inn rooms were recently renovated and very nice compared to most motel standards. The bed was comfy and they provided plenty of pillows. The bathroom was a little small but I also had to work around a preggo belly that didn't love the sink location. Staff was very friendly and informative about local things to do.

Very clean and comfortable. Nice location. Older hotel remodeled. We had room 12 which door abuts another room. We could hear their TV all night. I would stay here again.
