Very Good8.0
Nice place
This was the first time I stayed here. The room was very nice. We had a king bed and it was one of the better places we had stayed. We said that it would be a place to stay again

Excellent place to stay
We were more than pleased. The decorating was so impressive. Really like no carpeting but purging. The bathroom and shower area were marble. Very impressive and if we ever are in the area would stay again.

Reasonably Clean but not very welcoming.
The purpose of my stay was to rest following a family members memorial service. I'm handicapped and wanted to use the pool to rest my body to prepare for the 9 hour return drive home the next day. The office staff said the pool was closing in 9 minutes, and didn't offer to extend that for a half hour for us when I asked. I was in an upstairs room and the ice machine was downstairs on the opposite corner of the property causing me extra pain to retrieve ice. There certainly wasn't any assistance/discount offered for two women traveling alone to bury a family member. The room appeared and smelled clean, and the room was quiet, those were the positives. The negatives that haven't already been mentioned, not enough towels. So, if all you want is a quiet night in a reasonably clean room, then this would work. Will I choose this motel for future stays? To just rest, only if other options were unavailable. For a family trip - Definitely not.
