We stayed in this motel for 4 nights while moving our daughter to Carthage. There we no rooms at the Best Western and only "smoking" rooms available at the Holiday Inn Express at a heavy price, otherwise we would probably not have stayed here more than the 1 night. The rooms are old and dark to say the least. They smell quite musty (my husband thought it might be the cleaning supplies they used, but I think it was just an "old motel" musty smell). We ended up getting some Fabreeze to help the room's aroma and that helped make it more tolerable. I can't say the room was dirty, but it was just kind of dingy due to it's age. The towels were almost paper thin and small and shampoo and soap were the very bottom quality. We did not use the shampoo because of that reason. The mattresses and bedding are of very poor quality or simply worn out. When we first arrived, the light between the beds would not work as the switch was broken. We told the front desk and after we returned from dinner, it was working so this was a positive point. Parking is right outside your doorway as all the rooms have exterior doors. They have a minimal continental breakfast (honey buns in invidual packages, 2 kinds of cereal, toast, juice and coffee). We didn't spend much time in our room, so the agedness of the motel was tolerable and the rates were low. You get what you pay for in this case, but if you're looking for a cheap place to stay and you're not fussy, this is the place for you.
