My family and I had to rent a room for 3 weeks while we were waiting to move our mobile home to be moved. They were extremely nice and helpful. I have never experienced such great customer service in my life as I experienced there. I would recommend any one to go and spend the night or spend as much time as they need their. You would not be disappointed.

i thought this place was ok when i first got there. the manager seemed nice the room not great but not horrible. the problems started after a few days. you cant use a hair drier, microwave, hot plate, or anything else because it will trip the electricity and you will be without power. when you call to ask manager to turn it on you get an attitude and told not to cook. none of the drains work both the tub and the sink, you have to empty them with a bucket. if you ask the manager to have them fixed she threatens to kick you out. the pictures i have seen online are not accurate none of the rooms i have seen are in near as nice of shape. she says there is WiFi but only if you go sit in the office. she charges you more than she is supposed to and pockets the extra cash. she writes you a receipt from one book and keeps another set of books that she shows the owner. some very sketchy people live there including sex offenders and almost everyone, including the manager, use drugs. cops are there all of the time. leaving that dump was the best day of my life!

When I came to the motel, the manager was pleasant... at first. She was willing to help out with whatever you needed, including transportation to the store. I'm not sure if it was the stress of managing a place like this motel that changed her, or if it was personal feelings toward certain tenants but her attitude completly changed after a while. The smoke detectors weren't working until an evicted tenant threatened to have the state come in to see that it, in fact, wasn't up to code. The rooms have fleas and I had to treat my cat for it. The breakers trip from hot plates or even a microwave. The internet only works by the office, and the cops were always there because DRUG ADDICTS/DEALERS were living there. There isn't any room service or breakfast, or even coffee. The place is full of shady characters and the good ones are smart enough to jump ship. I also HAVE to include that the mattresses were DISGUSTING!! They were covered in stains, some of which looked like urine, and they made my own bedding reek. I wouldn't reccommend this motel to my worst enemy, and I hope mine and everyone else's experiences there shed a little light to those who've never been there.

The manager is amazing. She helps you with anything. She's the most caring person I've ever met. The rooms are nice. And she gives you the option if you want her to clean it. Or you can clean it yourself also she makes sure your always taken care of. A huge help and always understanding and there when you need someone to talk to. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
