Thanks for your review If you had seen us at the office we could have addressed the issues or you could spend more money instead of just going for the cheapest price.

We arrived late at night with just enough time for a shower and to sleep.. the shower was excellent. Great pressure and as hot as you want. The bed was awful - springs digging in your back made for a very awake kind of sleep.

The owner was amazing and very friendly, for a budget priced motel, it was great. Close to everything, easy to find. I rate it 5 star for budget priced motel.
