Decent Motel

All I needed was a place to lay my head, be by myself and this was it. It was not a 5 star hotel by any means. It had what I wanted, clean bed, tv, clean towels, no bells and whistles.

Place to stay near Rt 87

I needed a place to stay traveling on Rt 87. It was a great price, but you get what you pay for. The bed was very clean and comfortable and the sink was clean. Other than that, the room needed replacements. A lot of the room was older. The area was fairly safe to stay. This is a good place to stay if you just need a good night's rest. Check in and out was fast.

Get what you pay for

Beds comfortable and clean. Bathroom pretty clean. What jumps out at you is (a) the junkyard out the bathroom window and (b) the management need to vacuum in the corners and along the edges of the room. Aside from that, very reasonably priced, very convenient.

Affordable but needs improvements

I could not understand a word the owner said. He could not understand a word I said, even when I spelled my name one letter at a time. He never received my reservation, apparently due to a faulty fax machine. Upon registering, communicating a request for size of bed and "NON-SMOKING" was still nearly impossible. Upon displaying a credit card and signing the registration form, we were provided a key with a smile. Room smelled like a stale ash tray, and parts of sink were dirty. Bathroom smelled bad at first but A/C filtered it w/in 1/2 hr. Bed was like a rock, and we both woke several times during the night in pain from the bed. Bathroom was missing facial tissues, had two small bath towels and lacked courtesy shampoo. Courtesy soap was scented - dangerous for allergies. There was no coffee pot provided and no continental breakfast (or donuts). Towels and tub were clean. It was nice to have access to an evening movie. Walls were thin. Although neighboring visitors were courteous with keeping noise levels to a minimum, it was still annoying to hear nearly every noise they made. No apparent option for late checkout. This would be an easy add-on for the hotel management to gain both revenue and happier customers. If our children were with us for this visit, we would have gone to a better-known chain instead. Unfortunate for this establishment's owner is that the language barrier was such a problem in the beginning that I felt voicing this feedback or asking for any amenities would have been fruitless frustration for both of us. [*] If staying here, bring pencil and paper for communication, your own soap, shampoo and extra towel, your morning snack the night before.
