I booked this through an "unpublished rate" as a 3 star hotel. Not even close to a 3 star hotel, probably more of a 1.5-2 star. I spent about 50 bucks, and I got ripped off. It is a motel with outside entry doors and furniture from the 80s. The bed linens seemed clean and they had updated to the white bed set up, but the plethora of bugs (albeit harmless lady bug and a bunch of gnat-type bugs in the bathroom) counterbalanced it! Ceiling in the bathroom was actually falling down, and they had a power strip for outlets as had very few wall outlets. Musty smell, thin walls and I felt very unsafe as a single traveler so barely slept at all. Carpet was also so sticky I literally stood on my shoes to put on some thick socks. If I had gone looking for a 1.5 to 2 star probably would not be quite as upset; housekeeping is obviously making an effort, but this motel is old and certainly NOT 3 stars. I have pics I will try to attach.
