We exited i90 at 4 am needing rest until morning. Owner(?)
wanted to charge 70 something and we talked him down a few dollars. Owner(?) said he needed to come show us how to open the door because the key didn't work so good. He basically had to jiggle the lock and kick the door open. We felt the need to place the only chair in the room up against the door and we slept in our clothes. There were soap bits in the sink and tub and a pair of sunglasses in the floor. A rubberband in the floor and dirty pillow cases. Thank goodness for traveling with our own pillows. We were too tired to look for anything else. When i told the man that we did not have a good night and that the room was dirty he said he would tell housecleaning (who looked to be his wife). Like the other review, i've stayed in cheap before, but there is a difference between cheap and dirty.
