Had booked pet friendly which had listed having pet bowls but room was not set up. Attention to cleanliness was lacking. No towels upon arrival. Self check in not the greatest when the room is missing items. Nice quiet motel.

What a lovely little motel, so so great! Loved the app and not having to deal with front staff, just drive up to your room and use your phone to get into the room! Rooms are lovely, clean, tasteful and modern! Quick walk into down but far enough away from all the noise. Only issue was we were unable to connect to wifi. We loved our stay and will be back!
