Fair 4.0
They didn't wash the sheets in my cabin. They were stained yellow and had hair in them. Mould in bathroom was probably not healthy either. Otherwise not too bad. The owners are friendly. Breakfast is a bit basic, just toast and fruit.

The staff was responsive to our needs. The room was clean, but furnishing was unappealing. Bathroom was small with tiny shower. Beds were supported by 2x4's which could provide injury. This was reported to the manager.

Charming Place
Nice old place with character and charm that befits a place of its age. Great location. Clean. Bathrooms are tiny, at least in my room it was.. AC didn't work. Front desk checked it out as soon as I told them...unfortunately this was at check out. Not a big deal. I appreciated the quick response though.

Not maintained very good. Lots of dead and live bugs in the room. Dont think that I'm going to stay there in the future.
ca3 night business trip
Fair 4.0
The bathroom was so small that someone could not use the toilet when someone was using the sink. The mirror in the bathroom was offset from the sink which made shaving problematic. The shower was tiny; couldn't bend over to wash your lower leg or feet. Room was spartan. Upon arrival had to request toilet paper. It is typical of a 40's era motel.

The furniture and decore of the room were dated and could use an upgrade.
