    Cozy, clean and very cute themed rooms! Beds were very comfortable.

    The room was small, but clean and well-appointed. The bed, however, was THE WORST motel bed in which I have ever had the misfortune to sleep!! It was so hard we might as well have been sleeping on the floor. That was bad enough, but it also was high in the middle and sloped down to each side. I would absolutely not recommend this place unless they get a new mattress — at least in Room #4.

      The door lock didnt work, came back and doir was open. Thank goodness our stuff was still there. Had to brace things against door to keep closed. One chain old fashion inside safety. Very small room. Beds were comfortable, no deep divets. Floor boards creaked like crazy. Impossible to not wake each other up during the night for voiding, no room to change pathway to try not to squeak floor boards. Tiny stand up shower . Tiny bathroom, 2 stepper. I step in 1 step out. For the price expected better. People nice, clean, bed skirt rough. Flooring flat carpet old, needs replacement. More of a $50 to 60 room. Good for hunters or fishermen but not two older ladies traveling. Only good thing pull up close to door for luggage but alsi meant car noises next to windiw in AM. Main road very close, roaring vehicles also nuiscance.
