maybe even old school motels need some upgrading every decade or so? there is an undeniable charm to the large plain sign beckoning tired truck drivers; the room's wood paneling and metal conical lights; the bathroom's bright yellow toilet and sink. the tv had no remote, but some ancient apparatus fixed to the counter i've never seen before (i'm hardly a kid too). the office lobby is pretty amazing too. the nice couple who runs it (ukrainian possibly? they had a number of pysanky on display) pretty much take care of everything. when they were out weeding, they immediately came over when they saw us enter the office lobby to use their free wifi. as for the wifi, we couldn't get a signal in our room, which was about 4 doors down. but they had a couch to hang out on and check email. for $50 a night, the free wifi was a nice extra.
these are the cons; not unbearable at all, more like a word of warning to anyone who is more uptight about this kind of stuff :p
the room was really cold at night, overactive central air going on. we closed the room's vent, but closing the bathroom vent as well triggered a weird noise, so we had to keep that one open. by day, when it was warmer, it was not as bad. the historic channel changer only went to 37, so you couldn't even get all the channels that were actually available; i had to watch awful cnn instead of msnbc. the towels are really thin. it's country out there, so bugs will slip in if they can when you go in and out at night - i have the mozzie bites to show for that. there really is nothing around (which was nice too) except for ed's diner behind the motel and a megasupermonster walmart, so for dinner go to uniontown (40 e or w), which is about 15 minutes away.
so a basic, cheap, clean place to stay en route to kentuck knob and fallingwater.
