I selected this place only because it was the cheapest in town, but I almost regretted it when I saw it from the highway - it tends to raise all your worst fears. The office is removed from the motel building, and you need to press a button outside to talk to someone. It's apparently owned by a Chinese family, and I had a very hard time understanding the woman's English - no idea if her French is any better.
The room is brightly lit, but the furniture has suffered through the years. It was clean enough for my low standards. It had a nasty smell when I walked it, and on discovering that the source was one of those "scent" cans of chemicals, I put it out in the hallway. I don't know why, but the TV remotes need to be reset about every half-hour. Going beyond the last active channel in either direction causes this, as well as other stuff that I couldn't diagnose. There is a card in the room that tells you how to do it, but not in an obvious location. I couldn't get any heat out of the single heating/cooling unit, and the symbols on the remote are not at all clear. Climbing up on the bed to look at the unit didn't help either.
I was going to rate it as poor, mostly because it looks and feels poor, although is no doubt the best place for the money.
There's a great place for breakfast about a mile inbound on the highway, with a glass wall facing the road, and just before a light. The husband cooks and the wife hustles all the tables.
