Good spot to spend the night with the large family dog. Nice green space with beautiful big shade trees. Picnic tables for pizza and beers.

Serious updating needed. Blinds broken, heater not working. Multi night stay but no room service first night. For the price I expected much more.

Old style motel that reminds me of the days traveling with my mom and dad back in the sixties. Staff was great and they did a real nice job of keeping the room clean.

Pros: Spacious rooms, clean, nice and courteous staff.
We came off a 5-day backpacking trip and this was a nice place to end our trip.
