The motel looks like an old motor inn but I was told the rooms were recently updated. Although the location is a bit out of the main bustle of town it was near a soup kitchen with many homeless people roaming around. The room seemed spare although it did have a small refrigerator and microwave. The toilet was not clean but the rest of bathroom was clean. I was hesitant to put my bags on the floor even though it looked tidy. The pool was sparkling even though it was a bit too cold outside to take a dip. We were surprised to hear a dog barking in the next room and not surprised to hear couples arguing late at night. The heater in the room worked but when it kicked on the smell of stale cigarette smoke wafted through the room even though there are no smoking signs posted in the room. It may have been remodeled, but they forgot to decorate. There was not even a picture on the wall. The people who run the motel are very nice and seem to be trying to improve the place and since we only planned to stay one night, it was ok. At least the towels were soft!
