New owners took over a couple of years ago. The place is well kept. Nice manicured lawns. Friendly staff. The place seemed reasonably clean aside from the stray pubes I found in the bathroom. The rooms are not that cheap anymore. We paid $120/night. The motel is usually full and this year it was only half full. The room is fairly large and comes equipped with a bar fridge, microwave, tv, couches, two queen beds, and an ac unit. The place is quiet. The free wifi is not very good. Actually it was unusable. I ended up switching over to 3G to get reliable speeds. I'm not sure why the internet was so horrendous because I did a speedtest and found it to be quite fast (28mbps down, 5mbps up).
The owners were chintzy on the toilet paper. I felt like we had to ration what we had. We weren't given a full roll of toilet paper to start with and were only given one extra roll. By the time the night was over, our toilet paper was down to the last few sheets. The next day, same thing. One roll of toilet paper. Really? Can you not afford to put two or three rolls of toilet paper in the room? Are you worried someone might steal it? I can't believe I'm complaining about toilet paper. Never in all of my reviews have I ever done so.
The floor was wet near the door. I believe there must be a leaking pipe underneath because the rest of the place was dry. The ceiling looked a little rough with the cracks and paint touch up marks. A fresh coat of paint could help.
Overall, the stay was ok. It's what you'd expect from a motel.
