First off, the room was FREEZING when I first walked in. The heater was off, even though it was about 10 degrees outside with a pending snowstorm on its way. It took a while for the heat to permeate the room after I turned it on.
The room was clean enough, but the amenities were bare-bones. No closet or coat hangers, no alarm clock, no coffee pot. The Motel 6 across the street was half the price and probably offered about the same. I wouldn't stay here again. Not at the price I paid.
