Rude morning person
I called to ask about the parking as we were on a road trip in an rv. The guy at night said we could park there no problem so I booked the hotel. It was tight but he was very friendly and helped us park. The guy in the morning was very rude and said we can’t park there and we had to move. We were planning on two nights and taking public transportation while there. He repeatedly told me RVs were not allowed and we had to move it. I told him we booked through here and it doesn’t say that plus I called and checked before. He finally came back after 20 minutes and said we could stay but wanted us to move it to different parking spots if other people moved. We were out of the way and were planning on exploring.

Clean and comfortable
Was pleasantly surprised by this little motel. From the outside it doesn’t look like much, but once you get inside it’s very nice. Very clean laminate floors, big spacious bathrooms, very clean tub, and bedding. We couldn’t hear any outside noises and slept very comfortably. I would stay here again if traveling here. It is a great budget friendly option.
