This is an old building that has the basics and is functional but not comfortable/ enjoyable. The non-smoking rooms smell faintly of decades-old cigarette smoke anyway. There is a flat panel TV with a decent cable lineup, a wall-unit air conditioner (not central air), a microwave, a mini-fridge, dishes and cutlery, a small enduring table, and a desk. The bedding...

We've stayed at this motel a few times, this past stay was over the Christmas holidays. It is an older motel, but very clean - impeccable in fact. The rooms are standard, but even the regular rooms come with a small fridge, microwave and some simple dishes so if you want to bring a few snacks with you or quick... More

“A second-floor room means that you won't hear footsteps from upstairs. The back side is quieter (less noise from street traffic), but if you turn on the wall-mounted air conditioning/ fan unit, the constant fan noise can serve as white noise to drown out the street noise.”
