Conclusion first: There was nothing wrong, except for the mattresses being pretty saggy; one thing to consider is that: For a no-extra-amenities place (no internet, pool, flat screen, complimentary anything, etc....) in the middle of nowhere, do $68/night seem appropriate?
The motel is pretty much between Death Valley and Sequoia National Parks, which is why we stayed there. If you try to look it up on Google Maps, it won't show you the right location, so here it is: http://goo.gl/maps/fQGX
We had a room with 2 full beds, or more adequately a room with a full bed, and another full bed in a second room (which was more like a big closet with no doors).
It had a fridge, TV set, brittle bars of soap and a door.
It's pretty old in many aspects: I couldn't find a way of booking online, so I had to call to book; the TV set is roughly 12", but we didn't bother turning it on, anyways (who knows, that your neighbor is deterred from watching TV all night might be a good thing?); the rooms themselves are old, too, in particular the mattresses were pretty worn and saggy.
That said though, the room was clean and it was very quiet, thanks to the building being set back from the (not very busy) highway. The owners (who live on the premises) were friendly and helpful enough, and we slept well.
