    Cleanest place I have stayed at with dogs.

    Very clean for a dog friendly motel. Cleanest one I have stayed at in a long time.

  • 4.0.Fair

    One and only positive thing was the location

    It was clear that the room was not cleaned well with dead fly on the window sill and endless drain/sink flies showing up in the bathroom. Also, the AC was very loud, especially in the small sized room. This place listed daily maid service, however, we were told a day after arrival that there is NO maid service at all. Needless to say we will not be going back here.
