Stayed here the week after Labor Day. Rooms are typical 50's-60's motel rooms with parking immediately outside the room. Rooms could definitely use some updating and some of the repairs that have been done could have been better executed. There were a few minor maintenance issues. With that said, however, the room I stayed in was very clean and the...

We stayed here 2 nights with our 100 lb dog- lady at desk was really sweet on check in and we liked that we weren't charged by size or weight just straight $20 per night pet fee. Grounds were clean and quite nice for walking our four-legged family member. We were in building by pool and found grounds to be...

Joe was very friendly at the front desk, when I told him of my husband's severe cat allergy, Joe changed our room. We checked into room 36. We were pleased that the room did not have carpet. It was a linoleum floor. Room was very clean, fresh linens on the beds. There was a smell in the room,, but we...

We stayed here for only one night but the place is charming. i was worried about it being pet friendly but the rooms are spotlessly clean and no pet odor. The rooms are huge and comfy. Breakfast in the morning is a bonus and good strong coffee. Would definitely stay here again!

Needed 1 night in a pet friendly hotel and there weren't a ton to choose from. We definitely chose the best option, as this was close to where we wanted to be and a little under $100 - near impossible find at end of summer anywhere. Rooms are definitely dated and could use an updating, but overall - the beds...

This was my first experience traveling with a pet and also staying at this motel. The rooms were clean, the staff was nice and friendly, they serve a breakfast in the morning.

With a significant investment in upgrading the entire facility, this could be an inviting and pleasant place to stay. The location is very convenient. It's frozen in time, circa 1980. The furniture is outdated, television sets are old, our phone wasn't even working (manager did not care at all--blamed it on the maid), our rear window was cracked, there was...
