My title might seem like an oxymoron. How can this be a great place to stay if it is such a terrible motel? Because it is VERY cheap!
I arrived in town at about 3:00 AM, and just needed a place to sleep for a few hours. I wasn’t interested in paying the $100-$150 that other nearby places wanted. So, I looked for the worst place around, and I found this dumpy little motel. It was exactly what I wanted. I don’t remember exactly what I paid, but the price was really, really cheap and I even negotiated down a little.
The room was terrible, of course, which is exactly what I expected. You get what you pay for, and since I was only going to be there for a short time and I would be asleep anyway, I didn’t want to pay for much. This motel was perfect for what I wanted, and it completely met my expectations.
Having said that, if you are looking for a nice place, don’t stay here. Dig a little deeper into your wallet and get something nicer somewhere else.
