My wife and I are proud alumni of Ole Miss. We lived in Oxford for half a decade during school and love the town fondly. But this motel is the perfect example of what you can get away with when there's limited options.
The nearest town with other motels outside of Oxford is Batesville, which isn't any bigger and is almost 30 minutes away. Oxford has one upscale hotel "The Inn at Ole Miss" which is on campus and extremely pricey. The rest of the town are chain/franchised holes like this one. This one isn't the only one; there's Days Inn and Holiday Inn Express and a few others. They're all owned by the same extended family (the Patels/the Chaddhas) and take no care to keep them in good shape or give good service. Why? Because they don't have to; there's NOWHERE else to say but at their dingy motels.
On top of this, since there's no other options in this college town, they overcharge because if you don't like it, you can stay much cheaper....in Memphis, an hour away. That's right. You can drive an hour to Memphis and have 200 options and keep the price tag out of the triple digits, or you can stay at one of these lovely holes and pay upwards of $200 a night on the weekend.
