After reading the two 2008 reviews I was extremely hesitant to make reservations at this motel, especially after reading about the cockroach, but I rationalized that by now all the problems would have been addressed. So we made reservations for two days to attend a wedding. We were particularly encouraged by the two reviews in August 2012 and felt a lot more at ease about our decision not withstanding the fact that the Inn charged our AMEX card two weeks before we checked inn.
When checked in we found the motel was somewhat aged but the room seemed clean enough. We had a coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, and a vintage colored TV. We had to visit our relatives so we left our unpacking until later. When we returned that evening we unpacked and turned down the covers on the beds and discovers what happened to that cockroach that ran across the room in 2008 . It was dead between our bed's cover and the blanket. Because the roach was dead and we really didn't want to change rooms late at night we stayed the following night and reported our findings to the checkout clerk.
Since there are no other hotels in the area and it is centrally located, I would stay there again if I had too but would rather stay somewhere else.
