I agree that this is not the "ritz", and it is better than first appearances might suggest. We stopped for the night on Halloween with rainy foggy driving. The parking lot was poorly lit, as was the sign, but we stopped to check it out. The connected bar had some patrons and we checked with the bartender on availability in a non smoking room. The halls did smell smoky and we were dubious. However, the room was fresh and clean and didn't smell of smoke- or of attempts to mask it. We stayed and the room was quiet and clean with comfortable beds. we were a bit concerned about our vehicle in the parking lot being Halloween and poorly lit. However, for a sleep and a shower this place was fine. Would stay again if travelling through!
