Good value motel, accommodating and pleasant stay
This is a basic no-frills motel, however the stay exceeded our expectations. The room was very clean with decently new linens. The staff were welcoming, pleasant and very accommodating. Definitely we received good value for the relatively low cost of the room. We experienced east coast hospitality at its finest.
