    This quaint little motel was such a welcome sight for me after an all day drive from the south. It was perfect in every way. Coffee maker, lots of pillows, comfy bed, clean and spacious. Excellent deal for the price!

    Pool closes at 9 p.m. It is probably open while it rains, but you can call and ask. The pool is not completely indoors. One of the sides is open to an outdoor patio.
