    This property is a classic roadside motel. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Nice setting. Steps from food and wine. If you're looking for fancy, look elsewhere. This motel is no frills and that's okay. I'll stay here again.

    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
