"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.
