Friendly staff, reasonably comfortable room. Older style motel, with no bath fan and not many plugs to plug in device chargers. Bed was mid level for comfort. Everything was clean and tidy. End room was noisy with road traffic.

"Some units are a bit farther from the road. (SR 20)"
"Select rooms set to middle/back of the property. Busy Hwy 20 runs in front of the motel but quiet can be found."
"The gal behind the desk mentioned she was giving us a room in the "quiet end" (closer to town end). Probably because her sleeping quarters faced that way."
