Gross place. Had it not been that we were so tired trying to find this place, we'd have gone elsewhere. Reserved rooms 2 weeks prior for $59.99. That was overpriced. First clue should have been, motel mgr behind bullet proof glass . Dirty room, one room had live and dead bugs.Never had a motel room with front and back door, dead bolts did not work. Around door looked like some pried doors to get out. Rooms were King size bed, fridge, microwave. No coffee. One had no trash cans. But it was quiet.

Stayed February 2014, traveled with friends

If you are thinking, "wow, what a great price," take a moment to reconsider. Here are some of the experiences you will find at the a-1 budget motel:

-the toilet was clogged before we even arrived. The bathroom smelled of sewage the entire unfortunate two nights we stayed here.

-cockroaches!!!!! We saw about ten in the room throughout the trip, including one giant one and one dead one on the carpet. We also found a dead baby frog on our doorstep. Three of us squeezed into one bed because no one wanted to sleep alone.

This is a motel where people go to have cheap affairs, not a place to spend the night. If we hadn't been in town during the busiest week of the year, we would have left immediately.
