The outside looked so cute!! Well, it pretty much stops there as it is a very basic place to stay. The motel rooms haven't been touched since 1978 and the mattress was rock hard. However, the sheets and towels were spotlessly clean. The room itself was clean and so was the bathroom but it did occasionally have a funky smell of sewer and bathroom cleaner.
It was nice to return in the evening however and sit by the outside firepits and chat with other guests.
Would I stay there again? I'm on the fence about it. Now I now what to expect, and for $70 a night it's the cheapest option, and walking distance to The Hub for breakfast and the Mexican place for dinner.
