We booked and planned to stay several nights in this motel. We figured it’s nothing fancy but we only planned to shower and sleep there. Upon checking in, we noticed the shower was dirty the room had a slight odor but I cannot really describe it. The door's security chain was broken. There didn't appear to be any bugs in the room so we decided it was only a couple of nights and we would shove a chair against the door and deal with it, at least for that night. We didn't get much sleep because the beds were too soft and springy. Each time my wife or I moved we woke the other up. In addition, our backs hurt in the morning from the beds. We planned to find another motel or hotel in the morning but didn't because it was too close to check out time by the time my family was showered and ready to go. We left around 10:50 AM, and did not return until around 11:00PM. Upon entering our room, we discovered the housekeeping service never visited the room. I went to the front desk to complain, and to get fresh towels and coffee for the morning. The desk clerk told me the rooms weren't cleaned because we were booked as a weekly rental. I told him that was not the case. He then said the do-not-disturb sign was up. We I told him we removed the sign before 11:00 AM. I told him we wanted to check out then and not pay for the second night although we did not check at before 11:00 AM. He said he was sorry it was the "maids’ fault" but agreed. Then he said he would only charge us for two nights. I again told him no, only one. He then charged me for only one night (I think that was fare and give plus points for fair treatment and because the clerk was friendly throughout our discussion) Other than the fair charges following debate, the hotel is not on my list of places to stay. The showers were dirty, there was a cigarette burn in one of the bed spreads, the exterior of the building desperately needed paint. Stay at the Motel 6 and save $20 if you want a cheap and clean place to stay. They are usually better than what we experience at the Vandalia Super 8 Motel
