Disappointing run down motel. Old many times means charming but this place old means poorly maintained including front door, which goes to outside, with 1/2” gap around entire door letting in insects, screen door issues, and tolet that backed up. Since there was a plunger next to the tolet apparently this happens often. Other than paint, the place looks like nothing has been done since is was build likely in the 1950s. On the positive side it was clean and the town of Essex was interesting. If visiting Essex I would suggest finding a different place to stay or stay in one of the many charming close by towns.
