This is a 3* (acceptable) review of a 2* motel.The room was clean, and comfortable. On the second floor - a preferred location. Remembering what you are paying, the room had good television, coffee maker, microwave, and bar-type fridge. Bed was very comfortable. The carpet was new, and the bathroom had been updated, although it is small and basic. There were holes in the wall above the bed where it looked like a picture had been taken down, and the telephone wiring was pulled from the wall. The thermostat for the baseboard heating was lying on the carpet. It is one of those places where you wonder why the owners just don't take an hour a day to fix up stuff that actually makes no difference to your stay, but is aesthetically significant. There is a fair travel of noise between rooms, but the motel was not busy when I was there so that wasn't a problem. Room cleaning consisted of replacing towels and coffee, but not making the bed. I would stay here again for the same purpose - a place to sleep, watch tv, and visit the town and the casino. No shuttle when I was there. Locatio is great for the casino, but a hike into town otherwise.
