The owner was super helpful and guided me to the motel after I got poor directions. Complaints? The washcloth was scratchy , the bathroom light flickered after turnoff, and the shower was small.

Fair 4.0
The room had a bad smell. Not terrible, but still... Check in was a little weird, as there was no light on in the "office", just a sign saying to call:xxx-xxx-xxxx
