Good, Solid, Motel.
We were very happy with our three night stay here.
Our rooms were in the new (back) part of the hotel and were spotlessly clean, commodious with both refrigerator and coffee makers. The beds were very comfortable. (The work table is good to have - something I always look for - but hard to work at: It would be better if the chairs at it were two inches higher.)
All of the staff were impressively polite, accommodating and helpful. Check in was slow because all (it seemed like all) the out of towners attending the bridge tournament descended on the hotel at the same time. The half hour wait in line was made palatable by the front desk staff who were aware of and repeatedly apologized for the inconvenience and who were clearly working as fast and efficiently as humanly possible.
The young lady on the morning/day shift deserves special mention for her presence of mind, her efficiency and attention to detail, personability and helpfulness. A real problem solver: if the owners don’t realize what a gem they have in her, hopefully this will wake them up.
Breakfast each day, while the same as in most hotels/motels of this class, was fresh, continually replenished by excellent, efficient staff, good quality and generous. Juices, bacon, sausage, eggs (scrambled, pre-made), cereals, waffles, a selection bagels, breads, etc. No one need leave in the morning hungry.
This is clean, affordable, comfortable, solid accommodation that we can recommend without qualification. less
