This room was ok. Very typical low budget room. I had trouble getting the heat to work right. The room was a room. Just very average, to below average. No extra blankets. Would not stay again if given a choice.

I'm 56 and this was the nastiest, most run-down motel room I've ever had to stay in. As soon as we walked in the door it stank like a dive bar at closing time. The curtain rod was half falling off the wall, the carpet was so filthy and covered with old spills I kept my shoes on until I was on the bed. Of course I checked the mattress first thing and it looked bug-free, but the pillows were flat as a pancake. The worst thing in the room was the loveseat. It was covered with stains and grimy. It looked like something that had been left in an alley for a few months. Homeless people and winos wouldn't sit on it. This sounds funny but I am deadly serious. If I had thought any other room there would have been better I would have changed rooms. It was late and we had already paid or we would have left. The walls were scarred and stained and the smoke detector was hanging off the ceiling but good news; the light was flashing! As far as the pool? It looked about 10' x 10' (for real) and after seeing the room I wouldn't have washed my dog in it. The "continental breakfast"? Stale bagels and Little Debbie honey buns. The cream cheese had been sitting there so long it had water in it. I promise you everything I've written here is the gospel truth. The health dept. needs to shut that place down. If CSI ever used any of that Luminol spray and a blacklight the CDC would order it demolished.

Room Tip: don't stay there

Scottish Inn has "morning staff" that wakes you up, and will replace towels, change mini trashcan, but that is as good as it gets. There was "blood" on our shower curtain, and they do not clean the floors. I'm curious if they even wash the bedding. I'm about to go for their breakfast curious how that is going to go. The microwave sounds like its going to blow up!!! (They do not give out shampoo or conditioner; only bar soap sort of like jail) our room number on the outside is wrote out in Sharpie?????? The pool is decent goes to 5ft I've stayed three nights 42.67 pernight, I think they should personally tax and all only be charging 30.00 The Tvs are from the early 90s

We stayed one night in a non-smoking room was suppose to be 48 something ended up being a $20 deposit for a non-smoking room so made it $68 something. I called to see why it hasn't been deposited into my bank yet and the clerk told me it could take 30 days. If I had known that I would have paid cash.
I work 2nd shift so when I got there after work my husband and I found what we think was a bed bug. We didn't try to find more and was hoping that wasn't the case.
Don't stay unless you HAVE too!!!

The $45 a night room ended up being $65 when the added taxes and a not disclosed $10 fee for my 4 lb. Yorkie. No decent restaurants. Stinky room. Go to Motel 6 down the road.

Me and my family needed a place to stay temporarily, and found that this place had some of the lowest rates around here, so we booked. We came in and saw a somewhat decent room, but the tub was dirty, the door to the room itself wouldn't open properly, it scraped the carpet and splintered. The floors were creaky, and you could hear every time someone moved around above, below, or beside us. Parking lot was in poor shape, had people regularly running around picking up anything they could and picking out of dumpsters, and I was also bit by what I think was a bedbug, but don't know just yet, but it itches furiously! Breakfast was poor as well, old looking honey-buns, bagels, some stuff to go on it, coffee, milk, and Sunny-D. Only upside is that housekeeping was sort of nice.

Do not stay here, only as a last resort!
