I was stuck on how to rate this motel so suffice it to say, I'm stuck between an average (3) to an above average (4). I was concerned about this property after I had made a reservation and then found a forum note about it being a bad place to stay. I looked at the pictures on the website and opted to give it a chance anyway.
I chose one of the better rooms, a newly remodeled room. I was pleasantly surprised at the size and the furniture. It was a nice room for the price. The bathroom and vanity fixtures and tile were all nice, new and clean. The amenities were small but we just needed some place to sleep. It was quiet enough to do this but with the anticipated rain and/or snow, we turned on the heater which was a problem.
Here are the only two problems I found staying at this hotel:
1. The woman checking us into the hotel was having phone troubles because of the storm. She said the phone line was out and she couldn't run my credit card until Monday or Tuesday when she anticipated the lines being back up. The problem? She asked us if we could go to a nearby ATM and bring back cash. I said no, that we couldn't do that and that was when the remark about running the card at a later day came up. I didn't think that was appropriate.
2. The fan/heater in the newly remodeled room. This was a new fan/heater you could tell that by looking at it. The noise this machine made was incredibly loud. We had the heater on while we were out of the room so that it would be warm when we got back. It was incredibly hot by the time we got back and turned on the fan. It wasn't quick enough to be cool and we had to leave it on for awhile. It was quiet enough outside for a Saturday night around 11 pm but the fan was too loud. We had to turn it off and then turn it back on for air in the middle of the night. This was inconvenient.
If I had to stay here again, I probably would but only during a time that didn't require heat or cold or have a different room with a different fan/heater. I liked the room. It was large enough for us. The area was great. There was a bar close by and we stepped out for a beer and while it was all locals and felt out of place, we had a good time listening to bad karaoke, too loud music and people playing on pool tables. All in all, it wasn't too bad!!
