If this had been a $29 room, I would give it four stars without hesitation. But it was a $58 room, and I think it was about $29 short of being worth that. The front desk attendant was short on English skills, although he was friendly-ish. The room was clean, but very dated and LONG overdue for a complete overhaul. Telephone didn't work, drains were backed up, door card lock functioned poorly, and a single graffiti-covered ice machine on the first floor serviced all three floors of the motel. The breakfast bar was pathetic, offering stale biscuits, muffins, cereal in something like looked like a dirty pet food bin, and "eggs" that were suspicious at best.
On the plus side, I slept well in the king size bed, the (tube) tv had a reasonable channel offering, the sheets and towels were clean, there was plentiful hot water and the shower was great. As I said, had it been a $29 room it would get four stars... but for $58 it was a waste of money.
