Next time I'll keep...

It is a strip motel. Older but clean and A/C worked. For $45 dollars a night I knew I wasn't getting a Hilton but it was quaint, clean and The Trail of Tears ride left from there. I would definitely stay here again.

It is an older motel, but clean. You actually have a back door to your motel room. You have a huge back green space with more swings and a safe place for the kids to run around. People are friendly. We will always stay here on our trip. Economical, clean, and a pool.

Basic Needs for a motel stay. The staff is friendly and will work with you, close distance to everything. Just do not expect anything but an average room! Love the river in the back-- Feels very peaceful.
