We "checked in" and "checked out" the same night. We arrived about 8 pm. We left by 9:30 p.m. We were greeted quite professionally by the clerk, Elaine, who handled our check in efficiently. However, when we got to our rooms--we had two reserved-- the interior smell of a musty substance was overwhelming. The bathroom smelled of sewer gas. Having respitory problems we realized we could not remain in this place overnight. The next issue was that the heat was not working. Elaine did fix this on a timely basis. Then the toilet would not handle a normal flush of waste. The motel is dated, and not very inviting. Later we found out, that the motel had given us 'pet friendly' rooms. UGH! The smell of the prior 'pets' and what must have been their leavings was totally unacceptable. We told Elaine we were not happy, and she did offer us another room, but, by this time we just felt with the respitory concerns we could not spend the night. Elaine was very gracious, gave us no difficulty in crediting our account for the original check in charge. We would not recommend this facility, unless substantial upgrades were made, e.g. new carpet, bedding, appointments, etc. Identifying the pet rooms to guests upon check in.
