They charged me $40 for a night and $10 for early check-in for two people on a weekday. However, the taxes were all included so the price wasn't that bad, but the $14 would have been nice. The place wasn't the cleanest, that is true, but it also wasn't as bad as some of the reviews I've read. I swear I think some people are used to staying at the sterile and boring chain hotel/motels and whinge a bit much when they stay in a mom and pop motel.
The thing I absolutely loved the most was that QUIET. I wasn't bothered by the maids, didn't see any though LOL. I hate having some dumb maid knock on my door in spite of the "DO NOT DISTURB" sign hanging prominently. I also hate hearing people have sex. This didn't happen at the Crest, but did at the casino hotels in AC.
They have free post cards in the room that show decades old pictures of the place and it used to have a swimming pool. The post cards were very groovy and a nice touch.
