This hotel is a bit sketchy from the mystery stains on the carpet, a bit of mold in the bathroom and a TINY bathroom. I will say they were very nice and gave us their last room, which is a double bed room, for the single rate of $71, but we have stayed in much nicer motels for a lot less. Apparently the local rig roughnecks stay here, so they can bump up the price as the guys don’t really care about the cost – they aren’t paying for it anyway.
It looks like they may be doing some upgrades – there is a new flat screen TV, with a reasonable selection of channels, and the WIFI is free. It looks like there are new baseboards and trim in the bathroom, rather poorly installed and not painted yet. Did I mention that the bathroom is TINY! It’s about the size of a half bath in your average house - you can’t have two people in the bathroom at the same time. The vanity does not even have enough room for a toiletries kit and the bathtub/shower seems somehow smaller than the average hotel tub/shower. They supply a disposable toothbrush, soap and one trial-sized package of shampoo. It was reasonably clean, except for the mystery stains on the very worn carpet, old scruffy furniture, and a small amount of mold in the bathroom corners and shower tiles. I wouldn’t go to the extreme of calling it filthy, but it really could have been cleaner.
It was very dark room with 2 double beds. They desperately need more light sources in the room. The sheets on the bed were pink! They looked like discount store sale sheets, but they were clean. I will say the beds were comfy and the pillows were nice and plump, but we had to sleep in separate beds – Patrick can’t fit his 6’4” frame in a double bed without sleeping diagonally – which doesn’t leave much room for me! It was surprisingly quiet. It’s off the highway, but I expected more noise from the roughnecks.
There is a small local restaurant just around the corner, but I didn’t see too much else in the neighborhood for eateries and I’m not sure what the hours were on the restaurant.
