We thank you for writing us a review here on TripAdvisor! Being an older motel can be trying at times, but as you said we keep our rooms clean and up to date. We are remodeling our bathrooms right now actually! So we hope to try and take care many of these plumbing issues while we remodel. We hope you stop and stay with us again.
