    VERY clean and modern. Large flat screen television comfortable bed. Not a large room; however very adequate and functional! The owners are very friendly and accommodating. It is the second time I have stayed at this facility.

    I didn't see an ice machine and the small refrigerator had no provision to freeze anything.

    The shower was great and the staff very courteous. The bedding was spotlessly clean but the bed was soft.

    Very noisy. One shampoo, conditioner, shower gel etc in sachets not sufficient at all for two people. Parking is is a real issue not enough spaces. The room was small by comparison to other cheaper motels.

    Jack, at the front desk was awesome!

    Room was too small... location of the room in the back of the building felt unsafe...key instead of a card...

    The room was wonderful! It was clean and very nice. The full sized refrigerator and stove were great, and we both talked about how we wished we were staying longer and we could have cooked in the room. The ceiling fan was great! The beds were comfortable - some of the best I have slept on in a hotel.

    We arrived at 2:45, and the person at the desk was on the phone. I waited for him to finish his phone call, and then he told me that our room would not be ready for an hour. He took my number and said that he would text me when it was ready. At 4:20, I finally called and he said that it was ready but he had been too busy to text. When we got there (a 3 minute walk across the street) the office was locked and said that he would be back in 10 minutes. 10 minutes later, he showed up and it took another 15 minutes to check in because he kept answering the phone to tell people that there were no vacancies. Got checked in, got to the room, and found that he had not given us the wifi password. Went back down, and he gave me the sheet with the password on it. It was frustrating that 1) our room was not ready at 3 (we wouldn't have minded waiting 15 minutes; 2) the man kept answering the phone to tell people there were no vacancies; 3) he was gone when we came back; 4) he didn't give us the wifi password and I had to go back to get it. He was apologetic, but maybe they need more help in the office?

    The price was good. I was upgraded to a larger room because they were not full. The room was overall clean and the bathroom looked recently tiled. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in!

    The kitchen sink could have been scrubbed a bit better. Fortunately I was on the ground floor because there is not an elevator.
