The motel is in desperate need of updating. Poor WiFi signal.

OK but some things could be better
Overall it was ok. The property is dated but not run down. The bed was overly firm and the pillows like sandbags so not too comfortable. Very quiet. No clock in the room which was odd. It was a bit pricey for the condition and age of the place. I think under 85 per night would be more in line based on location and amenities.

highly recommended
this place is clean, affordable, and set back from the road and away from the center of south lake so nice and quiet. ernie's coffee shop right next door is killer for breakfast and has great coffee. only complaint i could think of is thin walls, so if you stay here be considerate of your neighbors! great motel overall.
