I really wanted to like this adorable roadside yesteryear motel. The owners were accomodating and left our door propped open when we said we'd be arriving late and my husband met the lady and said she was sweet. That said, the one queen room was tiny with a dorm fridge that kept drinks coolish on the coldest setting. The shower stall is tiny with barely a dribble of water the first night and a little more the second. It has one of those sinks that you have to hold on to keep the water flowing and that makes brushing teeth difficult. The shower stall had mold all along the bottom tiles, and there was moldy, peeling wallpaper all around the a/c unit.
Here's the worst part. I did not slepp at all the first night because the train horns blared EVERY 30 minutes. I read about the trains and thought it was a bunch of exaggeration. NO. They are loud and frequent. Second night was much better, but the third kicked back up a notch.
They have internet, but everyone with a laptop was sitting outside because the signal won't reach in the room. One of our Sprint cellphones got no signal inside, as well.
I like old, but old can also be functional. This place was lacking in the basics: a place to sleep and wash. Pay $10 more and stay at a chain. At least you'll sleep.More
