We had stayed at this same motel 4 years previously and found it nice enough, so we decided to try it again. We weren't as pleased this time. It had recently gone through renovations, however, I don't think they thought them out - in terms of the 2012 traveler.
The basics were fine. The bed was comfortable, The linens and towels were fresh and clean. The water pressure and temperature of the shower was great, The free morning breakfast was good, but we had functional issues with our room.
First off, there was a large armoire that contained the TV - directly in front of the the bed. The doors were not hung properly: if you walked by the closed doors, they rattled. Even worse, when watching TV, the doors of the armoire were open, you could not walk between the bed and armoire without have to move the doors.
There was a desk - but no lamp and no electrical outlets next to it. In fact, there was an overall lack of electrical outlets throughout the room. The TV, fridge, microwave and coffee maker were all on the same "power bar"! - or they would have been if there had been enough outlets for them all at the same time.
There was 1 spare plug in an outlet in the corner where the floor lamp and table were. Well... one spare outlet is not enough for a modern couple/family that have multiple electronic devices that need regular charging (laptops, cell phones, tablets, cameras, etc.).
There was free Wi-Fi, but the bandwidth seems to be hit and miss. Sometimes it was very fast and at other times it really slowed down.
The vanity was separate from the toilet/shower/tub area, however, it was near the room's outside door, partitioned off of the living area. Those lights were on the same switch as the toilet/shower/tub area lights - so.... if you had to use the toilet at night, you also lit up the living/sleeping area.
This is a review of our two-night stay on the weekend of Aug 18, 2012. I did send detailed feedback to the motel the week after our stay - so they are aware of my concerns,
