Crap motel. Owner claimed motel was booked except their "premium room", which was a dirty, cheap room with rotted bathroom walls, a dead bug on the floor, and a dirty tub which my GF wouldn't even take a shower in. Meanwhile their parking lot had the same 5 cars in it at 1 AM as it did at 9 AM, so unless their guests walked there, the owner's claim of full was a ploy to convince unwitting guests to rent their "$69 "Premium" room. And they have the nerve to offer AAA discounts, as if AAA would ever be associated with something like this motel.
Then there's the amenities. The shampoo and conditioner is in very small envelopes from a dollar store that wouldn't be enough to shampoo a bald head. And their "continental breakfast" is Tang breakfast drink and a dollar store pastry both of which you need to ask the owner for, which she needed to go to her kitchen in the back of the 6x8 office to retrieve.
I'm thinking that the value of this room even if it were New Year's Eve would be in the neighborhood of $39.
