I checked into this motel on 2/16 because I was skiing at Jack Frost the next day. The selection of hotels in the area was limited and the mid-range hotels nearby (Comfort Inn, Holiday Inn, etc) were charging high prices due to the holiday weekend.
I paid $65 for one night, which I considered to be a bargain at the time. I have stayed at many lower-end hotels, and I did not come in expecting much. We checked in around 11pm at night and promptly went to our room. When we entered, the thermostat registered 58 degrees. I set the heat to an appropriate temperature and the system only blew out cold air. The issue persisted in the second room we switched to. We finally switched to a third room, which also had no heat, but we decided to stay put due to the fact that it was midnight and we needed a good night's rest. I resorted to using the electric stove to heat the room, which was not ideal.
Apart from the heat issue, the room wasn't very clean and in poor repair. There were also two major safety concerns - in the third room, the chain door lock was broken and the smoke detectors were disconnected.
On the plus size, the rooms were very large and all had full kitchens. A family of four could easily fit into one of the suites. If this motel were cleaner and did not have the issues described above, I would gladly recommend it to any budget-conscious traveler.
