4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

This was not the motel I was looking for when I took this exit, nor was it the area I thought I was going to be in. But with two big rigs running together I was ready to get off the road … now.

(Looking now at the areal map of the other motel, the Super 8 was the right choice)

Lots of big rig parking and food choices next door and others withing walking distance.
They were down to three ‘smoking’ rooms, so I will call ahead next time. Neither of us though the smoking room was ‘bad,’ but the next night the other person commented they could still smell the smoke on their night clothes. I had noticed the hall had a pretty strong odor, even though it looked like there were only 4-6 rooms on one end of the hall that were smoking.

No problems with the room, it is an older motel, it still has wood seats instead of the $.50 plastic ones most places use nowadays. The ‘closet’ seemed to be an afterthought, about two foot wide next to the head of the bed, between the bed and the wall.

Breakfast was the basics.

Clean, quiet and hot water are my basics, I have a number of runs this way in the next few months, I’ll be back.
