10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Recently renovated room was very comfortable. First time had a separate freezer with the refrigerator. Artwork and furniture were very comfortable and made for very relaxing. Very nice location very quaint.
Cons:Electrical outlets were hard to get to by the bed, but USB ports were abundant. Shower was a little awkward as there was no door or curtain, just half glass that came out. Liked the open feeling, but bathroom floor got too wet.
7.4 Good

4.2 Mediocre
Pros:We arrived after check in time...around 4:30 or so- we were given keys and went to our room- which was quite a trek from the parking lot-where there were VERY limited parking spaces....our room was not ready- no lines, bathroom filthy-trashcans overflowing- we called the front desk and gave us another room-on the other side of the motel- we carried all our stuff and moved our car...our room was just okay- old- broken hair dryer, TV was messed up- very trashy parking lot and surrounding area....I will not stay there again-very disappointed.
4.0 Mediocre
Cons:a/c unit was falling apart
