Booked this motel via Expedia; it was listed as a 2.5 star and turned out to be a 2 star.
The room was clean and relatively comfortable; it had a HD TV, comfortable bed and very nice pillows. Unfortunately, I had a room on the first floor and crickets entered the room each day. The motel must have a very good vector control because each evening when I returned, I would see dead crickets in the room. I guess if you take a room on the second floor you won’t share your room with crickets and beetles.
The Continental breakfast is average and I had a hard time finding hot water for the oatmeal or tea; otherwise, the Eggo style waffles and French toast were quite tasty.
The room was a great value, next door to Dennys and adjacent to the Fwy. There are lots of places to eat within minutes and a movie theater within walking distance. No complaints about the area but there was security in the parking lot. Very large bathrooms in the rooms. I really appreciated the thermostat on the A/C which worked to perfection. I hate when you have to cut off the A/C so you can sleep.
No refrigerators or microwaves in the room.
