Rooms appear to be refurbished. Beds were comfortable and room rate was reasonable. Location ideal for surgery at Adventist Hospital the next day. Two adjoining rooms were rented for two nights. Motel close to town and within 5 miles of hospital.

Comfortable, friendly staff, good continental breakfast and within walking distance of my sister's home. A great value during the holidays. We had two rooms to accommodate other members of the family.

Uber is in the area but I'm not sure about Lyft as I have never used it. There are taxis as well but they are not very reliable and are very expensive
