My fiancee and I are getting married in September and moving next weekend, with all the expenses we went for the lowest cost option while in town for a family wedding. I wasn't expecting much and I was disappointed.
Take a second to read the reviews others have left. Now stop and think if you would use the same sort of language and write a glowing review of their "Clean Rooms" and "Prompt Housekeeping." I'm thinking they don't have much to do there but sit and write reviews to boost their ratings...
For my "real person" review check it out. We got there around 11pm and the night manager, who also turns out to be the day manager was cool, happy to see me and check in was easy. We got to our room, just 100 feet from the office and found the room numbers are just pieces of paper taped to the doors, cool, whatever.
We got inside and the place had a funk to it. The wonderful wallpaper that you see in the pictures is curling at the edges and the floors have stains, I didn't even want to touch the bedspreads and of the two beds one had a giant stain on the top blanket, not the comforter, the blanket and the other looked less disgusting so we slept there, with our own blankets...
I had a hard time getting the door to lock, actually I had to lift up on the door to get the deadbolt securely in place. The microwave door wouldn't shut so it served as our nightlight. That is about all it is good for though because it was so filthy I wouldn't have popped popcorn in it.
We woke up to get ready for the wedding and the water pressure was pretty good, shower tile was fine but there was a hefty amount of mold growing in the grout. The towels are so old one of them started to rip in half, they were clean though.
Oh, I almost forgot... the smoke detector which, could come in handy in a place where the electrical is questionable did not have a battery and the door was proudly open showing that it wasn't going to work. I would think that would be illegal, but whatever.
The grounds are decent, and the parking is well lit so you feel safe outside at night. It is easy to get to town, if you're passing through and just need a place to stop for a few hours of sleep it will save you a bunch of money.
To summarize, I wouldn't call this a destination motel however it is what it is and shouldn't pretend to be anything else. It is an old, cheap, Motel. We paid $45 for the night, for a firm bed, shower and place to change our clothes it was a good fit. Just don't expect sparkling showers and gleaming grounds when you pull up...
