The room was clean and quiet. Most of the staff were friendly and quite helpful. There are two reasons I didn’t give this motel a better rating - the first is the lack of hot water for a shower in the morning. This is an essential part of staying in a motel &

Very Clean an tidy. Showers great. Quiet enough. Unit has private grass/garden area with clothesline. Furniture past it’s best. Both vanities were 1/4 size hand wash basins with tiny mirrors. Hopeless to use. While plenty of room there for proper basins an mirrors, Why?!
