This place definitely needs to be updated, but overall it wasn't too bad. We came here after an awful first stop at the Motel 6. We told the front desk person, I think his name was John, that we had a bad experience and just wanted a clean place to sleep. He offered to let my husband check out the room first, but we were so tired that we didn't. The room was clean except for the carpet...it really looked like it needed to be replaced. I don't know if they have specific "pet rooms", but we were traveling with two dogs and the room we stayed in had obviously had a dog in it before. The door was scratched up and the bathroom door was scratched up from a dog that had clearly been left alone for too long and the hotel just painted over the damaged trim instead of replacing it. I thought that was a little bit of a cheap fix, but was relieved that it was painted over so they would know that my dogs didn't do the damage. The beds were comfortable and there was a lot of space in the room.
There was an awkward moment when my husband was loading our things in the car where the housekeepers were walking by and noticed that we had dogs in our room. My husband had left the curtains open so he could see the dogs and the dogs were barking at the women because they were peering into our room through the window and talking to the dogs. I understand that this was just them being friendly but I was really put off by it. They should reserve that friendliness for when guests and dogs are outside of the room.
