When we first arrived at the property, which is at an exit just west of town, we knew we made a mistake. There is nothing at this exit but a truck stop and this hotel (and a diner that had closed down years ago).
The potholed entrance was a harbinger of things to come. The Indian management seemed more interested in finishing their meal than checking us into our room. Once we found our room, we were alarmed to find flea market furniture, televisions from the 1980s and wood paneling. I returned to the front desk and received a key to a different room. Same story. The owner said we could not get our money back, so we got out some sleeping bags from our car and slept on top of our beds, fearful for what we would find in the beds themselves. My wife said "let's just leave and forgo the refund" but I decided to stay one night.
I got the impression from the owners that they wanted to milk this little cash cow for all it was worth and put no money into it.
The price we paid was only $44, but the Motel 6 (where we stayed the following night) was about the same, and much cleaner.
If this place is renovated, it would be nice. But in its current state, it is to be avoided, even if the rooms were free.
