From the outside the motel looks a bit ho-hum but the two bedroom room we had was very nice. They had supposedly sold out of standard rooms. There was a kitchen which had a stove top and microwave. The plates etc needed a wash before we could use them. The potato masher was dirty as well. The fey pan was way too big for the very small sink.Other than that, it was good to have a kitchen to make some breakfast and a simple dinner.
There is parking at the back of the building which is compact and has a single lane in and out so you have to hope you don't come head on with a car going in the opposite direction as one of you has to reverse to let the other one through.
There is a guest laundry to use. One washing machine and one dryer. The dryer is not clearly marked that it costs $2 to use. We went through $10 trying to dry one load of clothes but had to give up and attempt to air dry them overnight in the room.
The manager was cordial although not overly welcoming. Probably because she quoted me $150 over the phone for the room but I booked through Expedia for $135.
Good value and recommend if you need a layover on a road trip.
