We chose this hotels based on the reviews and great price. However, I would have spent more for a cleaner motel. The hotel looks like it has been recently renovated, but unless they start taking care of it, the new look certainly will become worn fast. The people that checked us in (unclear if they were the owners) were neither warm or welcoming. While the room looked very nice and inviting a closer look showed it left something to be desired. The shag bathroom rug was filthy. It was left on the toilet when we came in so they probably just mopped the bathroom floor and left it without laundering it. Who ever was in the room before us had pretty dirty feet! I went to use the shower gel provided in the shower and opened it to find a long blonde hair all wrapped around the inside of the cap. Apparently it was old and left in the shower instead of thrown out. I went to dry my face and there was a long black hair on on the face towel (I don't have long black or blonde hair) The ice machine was broken. The blow dryer in the bathroom was broken. My conclusion is this motel came and went. Someone spent some money on renovating it, but no one is spending money on keeping it up. So I guess if you go soon, it may be nice (although I question the cleanliness), if you wait to long it will not.
