"Not a fancy motel, but I'd stay here again. The rooms were fine, but one smelled strongly of smoke. The bathrooms needed updating. We appreciated the pet-friendly policy.2017-09-14"

"Bathtub faucet leaked in 1st room, so we were moved - 2nd room smelled like smoke and felt damp - heater air smelled like burnt hair, so we had to open the window - we were kept awake by people drinking and talking outside - front desk clerk was unpleasant and less than professional, and only gave us a small discount - don't recommend.2007-10-01"
