okay, the room isn't beautiful BUT everything else was top notch. Great hot water, had a bath, tea kettle, mini fridge and coffee maker and the bed was comfortable. Owner is as pleasant as can be. Road noise was not an issue. Trying to cross the street to the markets and restaurant, well that was a challenge. So glad we stayed there. Only two items for sure that could be improved, 1) a second cup in the room for tea and 2) black out curtains to keep the light out.

Not top of the line but for people that are budget minded it is a great place to stay. Stayed there Sept. 13 _ 17th. Most all are kitchenettes. A major market across the street for groceries. Instead of eating out ( costing a fortune ) save a few bucks and eat in your own room. Many fast food places within a 2- 4 min. walk

Very reasonably priced and friendly staff. Just in town for an overnight stay but thoroughly enjoyed the motel, definitely will be staying again. Close to several restaurants and shopping, quiet and clean. Great little place.

Great wifi and beds were comfortable. Honestly the only thing I didn’t like was the cleanliness of the room. But that to me is the most important thing. And I’m not fussy. I actually went to the store and bought Lysol wipes to clean.. I realized the room was cheap so not being painted and not enough outlets and no fan or outlet in the bathroom was all acceptable, I felt, for the price. But I think no matter what the price the room should be clean. The microwave and mirrors were full of fingerprints. The remote had chocolate (I hope it was chocolate 😳) smeared all over it. In one side of the room the foor had a large area of something sticky which had collected a lot of hair, it looked like pop to me... we wore our flip flops the whole time in the room.) the floor needed to be moped. The microwave smelled of pizza pockets and the fridges freezer had a lot of ice build up so we could barely get anything in it. Then I found a half drank beer can sitting on the dresser!? How did that get missed.. I took it to the front desk and was told it would be reported to the daytime manager. In the morning I crossed paths with the person I handed the beer can with three times and he wouldn’t even look in my direction. A dandy long legs spider had made a home in the corner of the shower. My daughters bed had a huge amount of navy blue fuzz all over the bed sheets but there was nothing navy blue in the bed? 😟 Towels and pillowcases had stains. They are obviously making upgrades so perhaps these other things are being left go. Next time I will spend the extra $50 and stay where I don’t have to clean my room. I posted this review on another website and the owner replied that I’d requested a full refund and then “threatened to leave a bad review online if he didn’t give me a free night.” I’m not sure who he is referring to (Maybe he has me mixed up with another quest) but I NEVER requested a refund or even mentioned it! Makes me wonder even more. But quite honestly when you have to clean your room before you feel comfortable I should have left but I had seen the “30 minutes to request a refund” and realized I was well over that time frame. I had thought maybe it was a room that had been forgotten but after getting the childish response from the owner I’m assuming otherwise.

Strange thing...if the room was as terrible as you described, shouldn't you have noticed well before 30 minutes had passed? You demanded a refund, which is fine because as the notices posted in each room say, we'll gladly give you a refund if you're not happy with your room (within 30 minutes of check-in as long as the beds and bathroom have not been used), However, you wanted to get a refund AND still stay the night in your room! I'll happily give you a refund but I won't let anybody stay overnight for free. You threatened to write a nasty review if you didn't get your "free night", so I'm not surprised to see it here. It's not the first time somebody threatened to write a bad review if they didn't get a free night and it won't be the last. Happy trails!

No major complaints! Friendly front desk staff, comfy bed and a hot shower with great water pressure. HUGE Tv - at least a 50 inch. Also very quiet. Well worth the very reasonable rate. A bathroom fan would be a great addition, but there is a window that you can open to let out the steam. Our room had a towel rack that came out of the wall and wasn’t repaired. There was a new one in the room under the TV but not hung yet, so there was no where to put towels in the bathroom. Minor though. Will stay again!

Yep, the occasional reviewer mentions the lack of bathroom fan, but this place was built in the 1970s and for some reason bathroom fans weren't a big deal then I guess. Someday I might look into installing bathroom fans but that's a huge wiring/installation job, and like you said, it's just a matter of opening the bathroom window an inch or two. And yes, replacing that towel rack is on my long to-do list, lol. Thanks for not being harsh; I appreciate it. Thanks for staying!
