I've stayed here before when it was the X and L and it used to be a decent motel. I stopped staying there about 4 years ago because it had gotten so run down and wasn't very clean anymore. I was having a hard time finding a room and saw their website that said they had new management and that the motel had been renovated so I decided to give it a try. By the look of the discarded furniture in the parking lot and the old washers and dryers next to the office it looked like they were renovated but my room hadn't been touched; it had the same old furniture that had been there for 30 years, the AC unit was beat-up and dirty and all the markings were worn off. The "Queen-sized bed" was just a double and the place was marginally clean at best. The rooms on either side of us appeared to be rented to long-term folks; there were grills and chairs out front and a bike with a flat tire. One of these neighbors started their stereo about 11:00PM and kept going outside to talk and smoke until nearly 2:00. I felt the website, with it's claim of "renovated" was totally misleading. The place looked like a dump from the outside (broken furniture, overgrown weeds, paint peeling) and the inside of the room I had was terrible. When I was checking in I told the clerk that I'd stayed there in the past and it had gotten bad so I was glad to see they had renovated it. If there were renovated rooms and unrenovated rooms the clerk should've said something before sending me to an unrenovated room. I had reservations for 2 nights but checked out after one. I would never stay there again. I also have to think that these glowing reviews are phony.
