There is not much to say about this motel. The main building is nothing fancy and it looks old. The rooms are very plain and small. The entire building is made of wood so you can hear people as they walk down the hallways. There used to be a restaurant and bar that was very popular in the 80s but it is closed to the public now. There are other restaurants and fast food eateries within walking distance to the motel.
