We were looking for a small cute town for a little getaway, a place where you could walk to everything. Downtown Shelton has many neat little businesses that could make for a nice time if you like to walk to things as everything's right there! Unfortunately we were on a tight budget for our "getaway," and it was great that City Center Best Rates had an unbelievable rate - just $39 a night! Not sure how they can stay in business with a rate that low. Anyway, at first we were leery, because we usually stay in hotels, not motels. But we found it to be surprisingly done very tastefully for such a low price. There was a lot of art on the walls, and it had all the cleanliness you would expect in a hotel, and I used to own a cleaning business before I moved, so I would know. There were a ton of amenities for the price like microwave, fridge, etc. The place was a little old fashioned and was a little creaky and shaky, but the stay was nice and we enjoyed a Twilight Zone marathon on their nice TV that weekend on the comfy beds. I saw that another reviewer said you had to check out the remote controls, but that wasn't the case with us at all. My husband had to get one from the office, but he didn't have to sign anything, it wasn't complicated, he just got one. The fridge came in very handy too for restaurant leftovers. They also had AC and heat which was a plus. We walked to breakfast the next day at Pine Tree and the food and service there were awesome. The only major complaint is that the internet was a little slow, thank goodness I didn't really need to be online that night. They're not the Taj Mahal, but for a motel, they had the basics I require of friendliness, cleanliness and nicely decorated like home. For anyone on a tight budget , I would definitely recommend this place!
