Clean and Comfortable!
Clean motel room. Bed and pillows were comfortable. The quilt was a little hot for summer nights. There wasn't daily housekeeping due to Covid but we were able to ask for what we needed. We stayed in a room at the front of the motel and unfortunately could hear the busy road traffic. The shower was good. There were way too many items in the mini bar fridge for purchase. I would recommend this motel.
