Love this place and the staff too. Carol is awesome. I have stayed here multiple times and will continue to return when I am in the area. Only wish they had smoke rooms available. Lots of eating places near by. Also a Krispy Kreme just down the road.

Visited in December. Motel is clean and in good condition. Pool area looks nice but too cold and it was closed. Good free breakfast. Only real con is it is on an extremely busy road that is hard to access Monday through Friday

Excellent hotel with amazing personnel. Room was spotless and completely redone inside. Full hot breakfast was provided, although advertised as just Continental. Even though the stay was for only one night, we are always particular about our pre-cruise hotels, usually staying at Raddison, Country Inn and Suites, Embassy Suites or Hampton Inn depending on the port we sail from. This...
