“The rooms were clean, and smoke free. Front desk staff and housekeeping staff were friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our stay at the motel. I recommend this motel and if you have a dog they have pet friendly rooms available. The restaurant next door was a great experience as well. You don’t even have to leave the property, fun fun place.”
