Very basic motel. We booked one night since we had a red eye flight; needed a simple place to rest/shower in the afternoon before our flight and this sufficed. Rooms were very clean, bathroom seemed to be re-done very recently. Wall AC unit was a plus. For the price, this is a great motel 2 minutes from the airport.

This is not a motel, more of a hostel. People should be aware of that. Theirs no one to check you in after 2:30 it becomes desolate and deserted. They leave your room open with your key in it. From 7p.m.-4a.m. their is loud traffic right outside your room aka the parking lot PEOPLE PULLING UP TO HANG OUT WITH THE NEIGHBORING RENTERS OR FOLKS WHO LIVE THERE. In either room to your right or left are noisy, loud, stand outside all night talking or smoking. simply put a hostel-good for a couple of hours while wait for resort or rental car. Some rave about the bakery/cafe yea NO!

It was exactly what we needed, inexpensive but very clean and friendly. I would stay here again. They are famous for their eclairs and oxtail soup.

Room a/c didn't work so they moved us to a different room. There was a large slug crawling on the floor by the bed when i got out of shower. Beer bottles all overthe grounds outside of the door. I asked manager for refund but was told he wouldn't return for 2 hours. I left and found another hotel. Travelocity won't help me with any of this and i called them immediately.
