Stayed five nights between Christmas and New Years 2012. We travel with a cat and dog (Vizsla) so finding a nice place sometimes is a challenge. Since we were visiting family in the area for the holidays we needed a place a little bigger than a standard motel room. We have always had good experiences at Candlewood Suites we booked this motel. The room was clean, a little worn but it was a pet friendly room so it is to be expected. We did not need room housekeeping during our stay so no contact with housekeeping--our choice. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.
I checked the motel's location out prior to booking to look at possible walking locations for the dog. I noticed a large sports complex immediately behind the motel. When we got there I observed a large fence that prevented me from cutting through the wood fence row to the complex. Upon a little more exploring I found if I walked to the south where Tattoo Parlor next door had a similar fence but where it ended there was a path cutting through the woods (small stand). It had a barbed wire string I had to duck under but very accessable. On our return trip we found a better path just a little futher south. It was littered with old fast food wrappers and bottles but after entering the woods it was easy going. Not a place my wife would want to walk but for the men this not a problem. Some women would not mind the minor garbage but others might.
The sports complex has all the fields fenced in but there is a large area surrounding the ball fields to walk the dog. Basically this whole area is fenced in, either from the ball fields or the surrounding businesses. It was a very good place to let the dog off leash and run.
The motel should have blinds on the windows that close. The sheeres that covered the window did not stop the parking lot light from shining in. Not terrible but in the middle of the night when I was having trouble getting back to sleep it was a minor irritation.
The motel is not in the best part of town. The trailer park the north is less than up scale, actually it is low rent. Although, across the street has a wide variety of fast food, just past the intersection where the motel there is a Pigglywiggly grocery store and a drug store. All within easy walking or quick drive. Access to the motel is super easy, it is right at the traffic signal.
