This is a very old motel with rooms opening outdoors, where you can drive up to your room (if on ground floor). It appears they added on to the original part. Very small rooms, tiny bathroom with sink outside. Very low sink counter & shower head.
The room was clean but when we arrived in our room, we found someone's smoothie on the floor next to the sofa - the housekeepers? The bolt locks worked but the safety door latch didn't fully close....and we could see light through the bottom of the door in the morning (glad we were upstairs).
The exterior corridors around the motel were gross. Everywhere we walked were cigarette butts and trash, both when we checked in and when we left. Maybe they're short on help? We noticed the (very nice) front desk manager doing double duty as breakfast hostess, including mopping the floor.
Maybe they can't change their age, so they should definitely clean it up. But the area's okay, its right off the highway, and we got a good deal through a BW promo. So its an okay place to stay if the rate is right, but you can likely find much better in independence or surrounding area.
