Jensen's is a VERY basic "mom and pop" motel that appears to be going through a prolonged renovation. First, the setting: The motel sits on the grounds of a RV trailer park that seems part storage facility, part full-time/weekenders RV park. The owners seem to be giving it a good go, and the manager is very kind, but I must be honest, we almost didn't stay because the surroundings are simply odd. My teen daughters would say it was "sketchy." My wife, (who is not above camping and doesn't require a hotel with room service) was very suspect about my choice of this place. Next, our rooms: we rented two rooms for the five in our family. Both rooms were small, featured surprisingly comfortable beds, had a clean refrigerator, and an assortment of furniture that looked to have been purchased at area garage sales. The bathrooms were small, dated, but clean and the water pressure/showers are great. Everything is mid renovation. While the windows in the room are new and fresh, the windows in the bathroom are old, rusty and feature peeling trim. This sort of represents the entire experience at Jensen's. While parts a great (price, location, friendliness, did I say price?) other parts are rough (setting, office is scary-cluttered, old RVs in storage).
In short, if you are used to camping and staying at independent motels, and can overlook the rough edges, Jensen's is a great value. If you can't, there are plenty of other options in the area.
