We found this jewel years ago, and have stayed there ever since. Not a chain, this is privately owned, and the rates are fantastic (AAA discounts, too). The rooms are nicely decorated, each has a fridge. The staff is friendly and helpful. If you're on a budget, this beats the chain motels!
Pros: Quiet, comfortable, great bargain
Cons: no a/c, limited TV channels, no microwave
