Upon arriving we saw a huge old fashioned bi-level motel. The woman at the desk was pleasant as she told us about the motel policies and some local historical attractions. We had reserved online earlier that day and also called to confirm that they were ready for us. We were issued a room upstairs face-front to the left of the office (which is open 24 hrs) so we felt safe enough. As well our car was parked to the side of the office window.
The room itself has 3 locks and although we felt no strange vibes during our stay here - this was good to have regardless. The carpet and linoleum appeared to be new and fresh so I felt comfortable walking barefoot. The bathroom was clean, in fact the bathtub was so clean I actually took a bath in it which is rare for me in an away-from home travel situation.
There is a small, clean fridge and a microwave, plus a TV (it's a CRT but it goes with the place). The phone in the room is also very retro - haven't seen one of those box phones in ages :D ... Note: if your looking for the latest flatscreen perhaps this isn't the place for you ;)
Although our room was facing the courtyard and highway the noise from the road didn't bother me during the night. I recommend the rooms towards the most indented back area of the motel as they are farthest from the road.
+Another plus: no obnoxious, loud, chain-smoking neighbors that party till dawn!!!
In the morning there is fresh coffee available which was good black (that's how I drink coffee mostly so I'm picky about taste), plus an ice machine to stock up our cooler.
All in all - this is a cool vintage motel experience with an affordable rate and I recommend this place.
