    Lovely updated, clean motor court

    Old fashioned motor court, but the rooms are updated, clean and modern. Rather than the traditional pool in the middle of the U, there is trailer parking. There is parking right in front of your door. Rather than a flimsy chain, there is a deadbolt. There are many pleasant little details in the decor and in the amenities. A mini-fridge and microwave meant it was easy to keep cold drinks on hand, or to bring leftovers for another meal. It was very clean. The bed was comfortable. There are many electrical outlets, and always one where I wanted one to be. My biggest complaint is that the sign is obscured by a palm tree if you are coming from the west.

    This hotel had 4.4 stars when I booked it, and I’m not sure how that is possible. Smell was bad, sheets smelled like bo. Sink was plugged. There was a random banging noise that occurred next to the bathroom. No night shades and lights from the hotel made it look like midday. Loud live band across the street playing until late at night. One of the worst hotels I’ve stayed out.
