If I were rating this motel in comparison to the broad spectrum of all motels and hotels from cheapest to most expensive, it would not have even earned an average rating. It is average only in comparison with other economy motels.
First, what is good about it: Nice, properly maintained pool. Nice electric heater in room for cold days. Our room and bathroom were clean. There was a nice compact refrigerator in our room.
Now, what's not so good about it: Parking issues! When this motel is full, the manager has to babysit the parking lot and play checkers with traffic cones to manage access to the very oddly arranged parking spots. We always had a place to park, so it's not as though you won't have a place for your car, but the nuisance of navigating the maze and parking where the manager directs you is a real annoyance. One evening the manager was occupied with other business and my wife had to move a traffic cone for me so I could park. I give the management credit for working hard to ensure all guests have a parking place, but the simple fact is that parking is a hassle we can do without.
But wait, there's more. Most economy hotels will lack one or more of these, but not too many of them lack ALL of these: The Kings Inn does not provide small, sample size containers of shampoo. There are no hair dryers in the rooms. There's no alarm clock. The TVs are old, tube-style, not thin digital flat screens. The room keys are old physical keys on plastic fobs that give the room number, just what a thief needs if you lose your key. Only washcloths and bath towels are provided, no hand towels. There are no facial tissues in the rooms. There is no do not disturb hanger for your door handle. We also found the bedding to be a bit uncomfortable, with old blankets and rather thin pillows.
It all adds up to the old saying, you get what you pay for. We didn't pay too much to stay here, but based on expectations from positive reviews from other guests, we were disappointed. This isn't a terrible motel, but it's certainly nothing special.
