"not really a motel"
by ILoveNostalgia, 10/13/2014
October 2014: Called 6 weeks ahead of time to make a reservation as we plan to attend a college event and like to support small business vs. chains, when possible. The man who answered the phone said they are "not really a motel" but he did say they have 30 rooms. Very strange!
