... there are not many choices in Lakeview.
THE GOOD: Most competitive pricing. The towels really are nice, better than most mid grade motels. If you book far enough in advance you will get the best rate in town. If you are passing through and need to stop in Lakeview, this will suffice. The beds are slightly softer than most chain motels, very comfortable. The air condition though noisy was consistent and worked well. The rooms were clean.
THE OTHER: The manager/owner was on vacation on my way through both traveling West and East. I never saw him - though I was told when I checked in the second time that he had just arrived and would meet us in the morning. Though the sign said "Open" in the morning, the door was locked.
It does seem they are trying hard to keep this motel comfortable and updated. It appears to be over 1/2 a century old. It is hard to make a building this old look good. There were obvious patches in the walls in both rooms in which we stayed, the rooms are smaller, the size you would expect from a 1950's motel, they are dark and the tile work was not done in a professional manner.
I did not want to rate it poor because it really does appear the owner is doing all possible to keep the motel comfortable at a reasonable price. However, a true "Executive" would most likely not stay here, but rather pay the much higher price at one of two other motels very close by.
I was placed on the east side across the street from the tire shop. I was surrounded in all rooms by construction workers and the tire shop starts their business and noise at 7 AM. If you stay on the west side you must content with the afternoon and evening sun heating your room, but most likely will have less noise.
