    4/5 Good

    Super friendly staff! The rooms are very nice. My only complaint was that after all the rain (I assume) the carpet was very damp in the room upon my family’s arrival. I’d highly recommend this motel replace the carpet with LVP (Luxury Vinyl Plank). So many hotels/motels are using it now. Super smart. The room’s floor stays so much cleaner being mopped vs vacuumed.
