Very cute motel. It was clean, comfortable, updated and we had a really nice time. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The cafe is great! And the hotel guest discount was really nice. They really did a nice job making an older hotel into something fun & cute!

The property has a really cool vibe, especially the front desk area with the coffee bar and games. They had a fire pit for s’mores and they played a movie via projector on the wall next to the pool. My main issue wasn’t the common grounds but the room. I paid quite a bit for two nights and we ended up getting a musty smelling room that was dirty, no hair conditioner and only came with two towels instead of three (booking for three people.). The room has unique interior design, but the tub was a bit dirty, large cookie crumbs on the side of the bed, among some other things on the floor. I have had much cleaner rooms at Motel 6 at a fraction of the price. I’d stay here again because of the fun ambience but only at the weekday rate.
