Our experience was decent, but it's clear this was once a much better hotel/motel than it is now. Our rooms were fine, beds were clean and comfortable, and we didn't have noise problems. The interior rooms face a very large enclosed courtyard with a small pool (not open when we stayed), suggesting it might have once been one of Holiday Inn's "Holidomes" that I remember from way back. The downside is that the place has a run down look and feel too it, not awful but clearly past it's prime. The primary demographic seems to be oil workers and "roughnecks" who need a short-term place to stay for a few days while near a jobsite, much more so that road travelers or families.
The "free breakfast" was in the form of coupons at the on-site restaurant. A basic diner if there ever was one, but the food wasn't bad, the service was friendly, and the hand-painted wall mural of John Wayne (as Rooster Cogburn) was kitsch at its finest. I wouldn't recommend it for families or if you are fussy, but it's not that bad.
A comment about the local insect life. As we walked in to the back entrance, we saw a number of fairly large beetle-like bugs in the parking lot and sidewalk. I will say clearly that we never saw any in the motel or in the room. This appears to be an indigenous inevitability as we saw similar bugs around a local gas station and restaurant.
