This motel had such great heating and nice large-ish units. Walking into a warm unit was just great! Lots of hot water and kitchen space is more than adequate. Clean and fresh rooms. WiFi was good. Thanks Surrey! We'll be back!

We enjoyed a great stay here. The hosts are so very helpful and friendly; southern hospitality at it's very best. The units are lovely, clean, and comfy. Super cafe/restaurant (The Grille) within walking distance at Bill Richardson Museum is a bonus. We wouldn't stay anywhere...More
