Booked "last room" on booking.com. When we arrived, asked for a room with one bed instead of two. No problem, we were there early and motel was only half full. Only twelve rooms total.

Turned out to be a good bargain,. A decent room, microwave, mini-fridge, satellite TV, and a large bathroom, This is a railroad town. There... More
