My only "complaint" if you can call it that is there was no easy chair, having a back that is a bit messed up, an easy chair would have made my stay perfect...…..most enjoyable. Thanks

Basic motel stay

Pros: The property was gated and the heavy gates closed at night which was comforting. The pool looked nice but it was winter.
The motel is now showing its age. It was clean and warm but the bedding was not suitable for adults. The main bed was a nice queen but my two mature lady companions had to sleep on a sofa and a trundle bed. These would have been OK for children but not mature adults. We did not get single beds as promised.

Old school motel with old school service

Stayed here for a night because most of ALICE was booked out. Defiantly an old building with outdated decor, but the staff there were amazing! Definitely worth a stay!
