A shortage of available hotel rooms on the date we needed led us to take a chance on Lions Inn Motel. We had read the poor reviews on Trip Advisor but also saw some good reviews. From firsthand experience, the poor reviews were spot on. Although we didn't have as terrible an experience as some described, it ranks among the worst places we've stayed. First of all, the sheets were brown (color), didn't fit the bed, and sported holes. They didn't seem fresh and the blanket also was discolored with use or lack of washing. Since the towels smelled clean, we actually spread them on the bed to sleep! One mattress was grungy and discolored but the other was newer, though very uncomfortable--so cheap you could feel the springs. There was an extension cord running across the room, covered by a little mat. Upgrades included a big flat screen TV (we didn't use it) and a reasonably clean kitchette area with a table. The bathroom was worn with mildew visible in the tub but the shower worked okay. I did not find the manager friendly--he had an edge. We had tried to call several times to tell him about a late check-in but he didn't answer the phone (this was at 10:30 and 11:00 am) so we drove by. The office was locked and no one seemed to be around. When we finally reached him, he said that of course he didn't care if we came late since many people arrive late from the airport. We were trying to be courteous and weren't feeling confident that we'd even get in since he doesn't answer the phone regularly. Don't believe it if the message says he's on the phone or serving another customer. He wasn't in the office. I think the hotel is a work in progress and he is trying to renovate a worn-out property. Until it gets a lot better, I wouldn't advise staying there! Customers should also be advised that this is a dog-friendly property and that may account for some of the damage in the rooms.
