If you want decent prices, lower your expectations. If you want a snazzy, spic and span hotel, go somewhere else. This hotel is reasonable and the location is great.
We had no serious problems with the hotel, the free breakfast looked like it was limited to donuts and bread of some sort, both of which have no appeal to us so we skipped it both days we were there. Fruits would be nice next time :)
The carpet was seriously sandy and needed a good vacuum so I bought sandals at the dollar store next door to walk around in. I think the manager should be following up on this tid bit....
Also, the comforters seemed like they needed a good wash as well. I took them off the beds both days we were there and kept them on the chair. As I'm not a fan of sharing comforters and it's known that hotels/motels don't wash the top spread as often as they should.
We had rooms 127 and 129, both locks on the outside didn't work and our cards needed to be rescanned at the front desk about three to four times, each. Plus, the toilet and one of the rooms didn't work very well. But these are all minor matters.
All in all, I would go back to this hotel as I know what to expect, it was a decent rate and a great location.
Note that the picture of the hotel itself is outdated, the hotel is much more run down than it shows but all it really needs is a good paint job and it'd look new again.
SIDE NOTE: The mechanic directly across the street (who shares a driveway with the restaurant) fixed our back light on our truck for $10, can't complain there!
