We stayed overnight at the Willow Springs Motel while on a trip to take some things to our son who is attending EWU at Cheney.
The rather tacky outward APPEARANCE (the color scheme, not the architecture) was definitely a put-off, but since we don't spend all our time sitting around looking at the outside, it wasn't a major issue.
The SERVICE - both at check-in and check-out - was immediate and friendly. No complaints there at all!
Our ROOM was quite small, but serviceable for an overnight stay. The furniture, much as the motel itself, was obviously older, but clean and in good condition. The TV, shower, and lights all worked as they should.
We really had only four COMPLAINTS. 1) The motel's LOCATION, literally next to the main rail line through town, is rather less than ideal. We had no idea so much rail traffic passes through Cheney during the night! 2) It was dificult to get the room TEMPERATURE adjusted to our liking. 3) The bathroom VENT FAN took almost a full minute to get up to speed, and whether it actually vented anything or not is questionable. 4) The DOOR to the room needed some serious help! The door was difficult to open and close; the doorknob was loose; you had to pull up hard on the knob to be able to engage the deadbolt; and there was a gap of almost 1/8 inch all around the door.
My wife thinks the Willow Springs Motel deserves three stars. Personally, I give it two. Unless you're on a pretty tight budget, I think the Super 8 out by the freeway is worth the extra money.
