The lighting in this place is very dim, even during the day time. I guess they are trying to save electricity. All the lights are low-powered incadescents. Even the lobby is dim. The parking lot is dim and the lights in the rooms cast lots of shadows, making the room look grim.
The hotel is very old looking. When pulling into the parking lot my first impression was that it could be mistaken for an abandoned motel (see: dim lights). Don't let the pictures fool you, imagine the building in the pictures 20 years later and that's what it is. The room is very worn and what looked like it was once white was now yellow. Paint was missing from some areas. The things that bothered me the most was the sort of creepy feeling from hearing random knocks/scratches/thumps through the night. The door locked but wasn't air sealed so I could hear basically everything outside. The exit near the hotel is sort of a trucker's stop but luckily traffic dies down around nightfall. But I could hear random cars entering/exiting the lot at late hours of the night/early in the morning. There was also a banging sound from the next room, which I eventually attributed to the refridgerator. Being that the room doors exit outside and was a few hundred feet from the receptionist, and that the outdoor lighting was dim and I was half-asleep, I didn't act on switching rooms even though I had wanted to. The bed cushion was thin, you could almost feel the individual springs.
The staff were very friendly. Breakfast was decent and there's a Waffle House next door.
In the end I left the hotel intact. For the $50 price there are several other hotels to choose from.
