The weekend price hurt but it was a great stay. No complaints. Thank you and Thank you for the trailer parking. Shower spout made a horrific noise and had to be wiggled just right to silence it. Good for some laughs. Not sure if it was heard by other rooms though.

A wonderful place!
My family had a lovely 2 night stay. The place was clean and everyone staying there were so friendly. You can tell the owners take pride in their business and had someone maintaining the property all through out the day. We loved the shared garden space to eat and play and watch the fire pit. The pool and hot tub were very nice and clean as well.

They were doing renovation. That was not a problem at all. We felt safe and comfortable in this type f motel. The only concern was very poor Wi-Fi.
