.Noisy 1/3rd of room was a locked room for hotel supplies? Pillows lumpy and hard. TV to dark. Overpriced.

Everyone was friendly, & the premises and room nice & clean. Really appreciated the Q-Tips & Cotton Balls in the room. Also the hot breakfast with sausage, eggs & tater tots was awesome!! Very nice motel for its price-range.

One of the lights didn’t work. There was an old used filter left in the coffee maker. The restroom and shower could have been cleaner. The free “refreshing” water I got to drink in the lobby tasted like it came from a pool.
