I usually make it a point to read ratings and spend my motel dollars wisely since I'm a small business owner and travel a lot. Cleanliness and a feeling of security are of utmost importance Unfortunately, I didn't have time to plan this stay and I guess I deserve what I got.
The desk clerk was rude and spoke in 1 and 2 word phrases offering absolutely nothing. No directions to my room were offered. The key was simply left on the counter.
The lights are dim in the halls. Many of the room doors are damaged/dented. Although the entry door from the parking lot had a lock it was broken and the door was partially open as a result. The ice machine in this entry area was posted "out of order".
Wait...there is a plus....lighting in bathroom is great! But, quick detracting from that positive note are many negatives. A rubber mat has been partially ripped up from the tub resulting in yellow/gray sticky stuff covering most of the area. Face cloths are dingy gray. One towel is kind of fluffy, the other is about as thin as the sheets on the bed. I carefully removed the polyester bedspread from the bed and tossed it in a corner. I checked the sheets for anything with legs or wings. So far, so good.
Bedroom slippers or shoes are a must on this carpet. I didn't dare put my suitcase on the floor. Moulding is coming off at the base of the tub, tissue box is falling out of the wall and the grout in the floor tiles is dirty. The room is big, quiet and is facing a nice wooded area which I find a plus. I can do without the rancid smell of air-freshener that is so common in motels of this caliber.
There are a lot of construction trucks and vans in the parking lot.
I'm not interested in anything they might have tomorrow AM in the way of breakfast offerings.
I won't be coming back to this motel regardless of the great price.
