Before giving the review, I’ll point out that I prefer staying in the center of towns. I don’t want to be right off the highway or by the airport, I want to be in the town (or city, whatever the case happens to be).

Unfortunately we were on a tight budget for our "getaway," and it was great that...

There was no where else to stay and I was too exhausted to drive on to Bremerton. This motel was the only game in town. I was leery when we had to sign out the TV remote. To be frank--this motel is old and the floor isn't level. The doors on the room are new, but the furniture is not....
