It is a concrete block building with a side gable, asphalt shingle roof. The other is a two-bay concrete block structure with two two-bay additions and a side gable, asphalt shingle roof. The concrete block building has a central brick chimney. The motel is registered in VCRIS as 036-5174. Unfortunately, the motel is in poor condition and may not stand for much longer.
