We are going on our 3rd stay at this Motel. Yes it's newly renovated and nice. If you ask "What's the price?" first over the phone and bargain you might get a better rate depending on the season. It is all renovated, etc. Rooms are nice, clean. Bathroom, shower are exceptional. Flat panel TV. Pillow top beds, etc. Great curtains for keeping out the light and some of the street traffic noise.
The only complaints I have is the breakfast offerings. Mediocre stuff from CostCo (hate those muffins!) and no Waffle machine, but it is enough to get you out the door and going. And the Internet WiFi is funky. Is is unlocked clear but you have to login with a one-time password good for your device (mac addr) only. They do have hard-wired ports in the room which is a great security feature for business travelers that require more security. I just can't get my traveling wireless router to work!!! :-(
And, yes, ESL (English as a Second Language) can be problematic but I had the same problem
with my immigrant grand mother! LOL!
We don't bring pets so I can't address the pet issue. Why would a pet issue be military? Seems to me they may treat PET OWNERS that don't adhere to the rules badly but not Military People!!! How does a pet owner know that their dog is not barking when they are NOT there? My neighbor would not believe me when I told him his dog barked (whined!) too much because it would stop as soon as it heard his car drive up.
It is close to the base. We usually check out a minute or two late and they don't bring it up.
