Stayed here en route home from a trip to Texas--since we were going to sleep for 6 hours and leave we didn't want or need anything fancy, just wanted a clean room at reasonable cost. Unfortunately cost was not particularly cheap, and room wasn't clean.
Dated furnishings and decor, if taken care of, would not be a problem... but flat out lack of cleaning and neglect of basic maintenance is an entirely different story in my book. Our room fell into the latter category. The entire perimeter of the room had a 2" wide gray ring from dirt/dust that was never vacuumed up, which was also present around each piece of furniture and especially under/behind items. The attached photo shows the dust line under/around the dresser, though it did not show up nearly as bad in the photo as it actually was. The sink photo is somewhat more representative--missing pieces, dilapidated fixtures that had not been repaired/replaced, and more dirt/grime for which there was no excuse.
The pillowcases were open to show the stained pillows. The next morning when I turned on the shower, the water ran rust-colored for a good 30 seconds before I dared to step in. The "continental breakfast" was a box of glazed donuts in a Wal-mart box. Needless to say, we were kicking ourselves for not seeking out the Motel 6, especially when we drove by it the next day to see the price was $20 less and the outside looked like it had been kept up much better than TravelLodge I guess the darkness and fatigue had impaired our judgement the night before!
