Cons-No early check-in which causes a back-up at 3:00. People were smoking to close to the public areas and rooms. We thought the vanity light was out, but apparently that was the how the lighting was set-up. It was too dim. Bar is only open during the week. Pros-Pool, Hot Tub, movies, free snacks like ice cream, bottled waters and... More

This motel made me lose faith in tripadvisor. I use tripadvisor to choose hotels and restaurants all the time. This motel had great reviews even described as 'fabulous" .

This inn was a happy surprise all around - actually a series of good surprises.

Love this place ... room was a little dated.... but has all the amenities and was clean. I would take a whole group of people as it has BBQ and pool area to have a group party. Fun little bar with happy hour and great breakfast bar in the morning. Will stay again for sure!
