This is a traditional motel that was built in the 1960's. It used to be a Ramada Inn but now is in foreclosure and is a "bank owned" property. A Bennigan's Restaurant attached to the hotel is now closed. The hot tub in the pool area is closed "permanently" as it leaks from the bottom. The best things about this hotel are the location and price. It is right off the highway and near many chain restaurants.
We were in town for a weekend for a youth sports tournament. The motel was mostly empty except for our group. The lobby is "ok" as is the indoor pool area. That said, the rooms are very tired looking as were the hallways. The parking lot and landscaped areas looked terrible. I have my doubts if they will eventually open the outdoor pool when the weather warms up.
This hotel is fine for truckers or those who are looking for a cheap price. There are other hotels on this same strip which are nicer.
