Have stayed here several times in the past, but not for the last two years, therefore was puzzled by the recent bad reviews, and because of a good coupon deal, decided to come back. Darned if I can see what all the fuss is about. First of all, folks, this is a budget motel, B-u-d-g-e-t, not a 4 or 5 star luxury resort with all amenities. Not fair to expect such and to make comparisons. Yes, the building is old and a bit run down, and perhaps the rooms may seem to be a bit tired, but that is the way budget motels are, accept it. Upon check in and all during the stay, the couple running the place were very friendly, helpful, and chatty. The room was clean, everything worked, the bed was okay, housekeeping was fine, and there was coffee in the office in the morning.
Two very small irritations, both about the bathroom, and they are really pretty minor. There was no drain stopper in the sink, but sticking a washcloth in the drain in order to be able to fill the sink easily solved that. Was not able to completely close the bathroom window because there were a pair of stops in the screen that prevented this. It did make for a rather chilly bathroom in the early AM cold, but these two things were not a big deal. If you want fancy, go right ahead and spend a hundred bucks a night someplace else, but for myself and many others, this and the other budget motels work just fine.
