01-Oct-2014 Verified Review, stayed from Mon Sep 29 to Tue Sep 30 2014 at a $50.00 group rate (15% discount).
"Fine Stay"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
It was a fine motel. It's priced accurately. Nothing fancy, but adequate for staying the night, especially helpful for those bringing pets! We brought a large group and they didn't really seem to know what to do with us, but we worked it out just fine. Staff was very helpful.
