... until I compared it to other motels I have rated as average and it didn't compare to those.
It is a truck-stop motel.
… measuring it by those standards it is an OK place.
Did find a couple of maintenance issues. 1) There isn’t a door stop on the door so the handle and security lock have put holes in the wall. 2) The tub has cracked and someone has done a pretty bad job of ‘fixing’ it. With all that ruff surface it is not something I would take a bath in.
Big plus’s … Cheap and lot’s of truck parking next door at the Flying J. Check in went fine, got my receipts then so no check out.
The room it’s self was a mix … The floor was a ‘Motel 6’ style wood floor, The furniture looked fairly new, but the sheets were old and the walls were in real need of a make-over.
Various signage on the property said ‘Super 8’ and Knights Inn, but today’s receipt was calling it the ‘American Inn / Sturgis Inn’ ... and when my credit card was billed is says Knights Inn.
Only food in the area is Wendy’s next door at the truck-stop.
I did not have any of their breakfast, but they had two name brand cold cereals plus bread for toast and a couple of other basics.
Meets my basic’s of clean, quiet and temperature controlled, so I’ll be back if I am in the area.
… maybe I should start reading TripAdvisor BEFORE is check in instead of after when I’m writing my reviews. I likely would not have stayed here … 22 terrible and 1 poor … out of 23. But I’ll give it their best review so far … (ALMOST) average. It is a truck-stop motel and I did not experience the issues listed by others.
