Units at front of property near the road are exposed to very noisy traffic. I assume most of the front units at any of the Motels along this road experience the same problem. Strongly suggest booking units at rear of property to avoid this issue. Otherwise everything else was good.

The rooms were small and there was just a simple wooden divider in between. You can hear the sound from the other bedroom so wasn’t that private.
