Based on the only other review here we chose to stay at this motel. We were less-than-thrilled by our experience.
We are very familiar with budget motels, we expect them to be no-frills, clean, and adequate. This hotel met those expectations. The reasons for the lower rating are the following, in order of severity:
1) the smell in the room. Despite it being October the in-window air conditioner was running, as was a fan to the outside. We stopped them both and opened the windows as wide as possible. We never lost the smell.
2) the operator of the motel, possibly the owner, completely forgot that he'd taken my reservation that morning over the phone. He tried to convince me I'd made my reservation elsewhere. We happily offered to leave but he insisted we stay. Over the course of our conversation he began to remember aspects of our phone call that morning. However, if he hadn't put my credit card information somewhere to be found later we would have left. I wonder where my credit card information is now?
3) the condition of the room. I don't expect glamor at this price, but I was dismayed by a sagging sofa, sagging bed, and evidence that the false ceiling (which was once clearly a sound barrier) had recently fallen in.
To the operator's credit, despite giving me a reservation he was not expecting me, and seemed a little reluctant to give us this room. Perhaps this room is rarely rented? I hope so.
