Gets the job done

Cheap, get what you pay for. Good location. All I wanted was a room, did not want pool or gym.

You Get What You Pay For

The associates were very friendly and accomodating. The motel is a little run down with age and the rooms have a smell but I used spray to help that. The contenental breakfast is a cheapie and not what one usually expects. Had to change rooms due to gaps in door where you coul see daylight. Walls paper thin making for noise. However, having said all that, I will probably stay there again as they are the cheapest in town and all of the rooms have a microwave and refrigerator. I guess you get what you pay for!

Lamp Post Inn

Clean, comfortable, and warm during 39F weekend. Only gripe is that there is no iron or ironing board in the room. The only option is a crummy warped desktop ironing board which is of little use.

Good for budget travelers

Very basic however it will be a good choice if all you are looking for is a place to stay and you don't want to pay too much.

Older motel but clean and quite.

An older motel with the basics. Had refrig, micro and coffee maker. TV had plenty of channels. Older TV. If looking for good value and don't need the extras or more modern furnishings, this will do. It was quiet and had a good two nights sleep.
