The location is along a road with many other nice enough motels. My impression is that this particular place is a dishonest tourist trap. Beware of what you are getting. Beyond having to pay $20 more than quoted, you will find one tiny bar of soap, nothing else. I could give more detail, but do yourself a favor and stay...

Very nice newly renovated neat and clean rooms. We gotta room with jacuzzi. Bedding was also very comfy. Hospitality of this motel 6 was very good. Front desk fellows were very friendly and they guided us which places should we visit near by. Location is really very good. All tourist places are just 5 minutes drive away.
