There is a regional jail a few hundred yards away. Haven't been around back of the motel so can't say what the view would be. Could very well be a stand of trees between the two and jail wouldn't even be noticed.

he jail is a modern facility. Block building with few windows surrounded by tall fence. Prisoners seldom if ever outside.

There is also a federal minimum security prison a few miles away at far end of industrial park by the airport. Looks more like a city park than a prison setting. Staying at Sleep Inn you wouldn't even know it was there.

I would have no problem staying at Sleep Inn.

Pulled it up on MapQuest and checked aerial view. Yes there are trees between the two buildings. Probably wouldn't notice the jail without knowing before hand it was there.

Thank you for the information - I was just concerned for safety reasons. Sounds like it will be fine for an over night stop.

Never had any problems at that hotel concerning either jail.

It is right off the interstate, good location for an overnight stay. A few fast-food resturants are just down the hill in Beaver, also Bellecinos for good fast Italian food, and a little Chinese place down there too.
