we called around midnight, from the HOJO down the street, where we had a reservation and wanted to cancel. the man I spoke to on the phone was very accommodating. They didn't charge for pets, and offered the AARP discount because my grandmother was with us. We ended up saving $ by staying here, and although the rooms weren't as...

we came late and made a wrong decision to select the Motel 6!

It was reasonably close to the highway to get on. The room looked good. I noticed that they let the homeless stay here, or so it looked that way. A lot of doors opening and closing and vehicles coming and going thru out the night. Didn't feel too comfortable about this.
