Very nice place to stay, staff was very friendly. We don't eat breakfast there, but it looked good. We felt it was a little pricey for not having a pool.

The lobby is small and this is where the breakfast is, but you can still grab your food and take back to your room. The breakfast was a normal continental breakfast with waffles, breads, fruit, coffee and juice. The rooms are... More

This motel was very nice with comfortable beds and friendly people at the front desk. The room was clean and the continental breakfast was sufficient with waffles, fruit, yogurt, cereal, pastry, etc. The breakfast area was just a bit small with only 2 tables and 2 arm chairs.

Thank you for sharing your comments regarding our courteous staff. We have such a great team. We try to make everyone feel as if it's their home away from home.
