The fire pit area was great for relaxing with family but it wasn’t user friendly. That area was under construction so maybe the on/off switch hadn’t been installed yet. Over all the hotel was nice but some carpets need to be pulled out and replaced.

I chose this hotel for the location and it was wonderful. This place has the charm of an old roadside hotel, but updated and quiet. I was very happy to see a little brick patio outside sliding glass doors to a private back area with...More

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.

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
