We also had made reservations through a number listed on the Internet thinking it was the motel. Reservations. Com. Somehow the original reservations got canceled and we were out over $720. We made duplicate reservations but still lost over $720.

The staff was nice. The room door had gaps in it. The phone was unplugged, when we finally found the jack it was messed up. The bathroom light went out so was unable to shut the door when using the bathroom or taking a shower. Used q tips in the floor.

Very nice management and staff. They are in the process of remodeling and seem to be doing it on the fly. Kindness goes a long ways with me. So, give them a chance and help them to reach their goal of making this place nice.
