Another Sport Fishing adventure. The location of this motel is excellent if there is nothing else good to be said about it. Oh, and the front staff were very nice and actually professional as well. But the property is a typical dive motel. The first thing that comes to your eye is the filthy concrete sidewalks, covered with stains and old gum. The next thing you notice is the railings on the steps and second floors: rusted and needed a paint job long ago. The parking lot is hardly designed for big rigs, but there are trucks parked all over the place.
The room. One very pleasant surprise about the room we stayed in is that the bathroom had obviously been renovated. They had installed a new shower stall and it was clean and in excellent condition, as was the rest of the bathroom. I am used to seeing mold and mildew in Motel 6 bathrooms, so that was a good mark for this motel. Small bathroom, but don't really care about that.
The room. The bed spreads had holes in them. Looked like cigarette burns perhaps. Unbelievable that they would just keep using bedspreads with holes in them?!! The AC worked, but the cover for it was missing...ugly and very dirty. The window looked like it hadn't been cleaned since......they installed it. There was no alarm clock, no clock of any kind. I have noticed this "trend" at low budget motels so I just bring my own with me, we had to be up at 3:00am to leave on a boat and I don't trust those automated phone calls to wake you up. But, I did ask them to do that, the call came at 3:10am instead of the 3:00am call we asked for.
I have my own wireless - verizon hotspot (you aren't going to get 4G out here, it's 3G only) so I didn't bother to pay for their internet which is usually pretty slow. Apparently this property allows animals, there was a dog barking inside someone's room. I have learned to counter cheap motel noise by bringing a box fan with me and ear plugs. Crazy? Perhaps, but I need my sleep! I didn't experience any bed bug bites. I didn't watch their tv and I didn't use the pool. I personally would not use a public pool in a place like that considering the lack of cleanliness on the rest of the property.
McDonald's is literally right next door. Denny's directly across the street.
