I read all of the reviews and thought I would give the motel a try. At check in I felt uneasy with the look of the lobby. It was very dingy and 2 or 3 animals lounging in the lobby. I don't mind pets and have a dog of my own but it made me uneasy to see the animals have free range of the place. I checked into the room and upon entering was ready to leave. My five year old daughter said "Mom this place is creepy". I had to agree with her but wanted to tough it out and just sleep and continue our travel in the morning. I went to the bathroom and it did not help my to feel any better. The toilet was old and the seat was chipping off. The shower had mold in the grout. I took the bed spread off the bed and the blankets underneath were scairy. I don't know what was on them but it was frightening. The mattress moved and you could see the sides of the box spring and it was horrible. There was so much dirt and hair and I have no clue what else stuck in the edge. I tried to plug in my phone charge and most of the outlets did not work. I finally found one that did and when I plugged in my phone I noticed some sort of old candy and lots of dirt and hair on the floor against the wall. The last straw was when I pulled back the pillow and found a pubic hair under the pillow. I grabbed my girls and told them we were leaving there was no way I could stay here. I tried to stay and did not want to seem like a snob but the room made me feel so uncomfortable I would have never got any sleep.
I went to the lobby and explained to the women at the front that I could not stay here and I would like a refund of my money. I told her that even if she did not refund my money I would not be staying. I told her about the hair and that I was just going to continue driving to Cheyenne. She said she knows that the sheets were changed and asked if I wanted to try another room. I said no I wanted to keep driving and find somewhere else. She did not seem very happy about it but she did refund my money and we left and drove and found a much cleaner place to stay.
I would not recommend this place and would advise you to not stop and the cheap price and quirky decor is not enough to make up for the uncleanliness of the room.
