The Sharon Motel is a small locally owned motel. The rooms were very clean, had comfortable beds, good towels and were very affordable. The office staff were very helpful and friendly. Check in was easy and fast. In the morning they provide complimentary coffee, tea and water. It was a very nice visit.
