OK, so I had not very high expectations....having suffered in other rural motels with no chain name attached. So I was pleasantly surprised by the value for the money. Came here to be ahead of the weather one night. It's locally owned by pleasant people, clean and safe (the police station is just around the corner). McDonald's is right across the street and Vito's next door (Vito's is a great place to eat or carry out). Food Lion, Jaquelina's and Subway round out the other food places within 1/4 mile, and there are two gas stations and a CVS very close for convenience. Right off Route 60 and 29.
The room had two double beds which were fairly compfortable. Mini-fridge was a surprise, as was the HD cable - on flat-panel TV. There's also free wi-fi, and enough desk space to work. The heater (a window unit) had been turned off so I had it on (along with my coat) for quite some time before the room became warm enough to relax. I'm pretty sure the carpet has only the thinnest pad between a concrete base, also keeping the room chilly. Even on low, the unit is a tad noisy but I was tired and I slept through it.
The bathroom had a shower, pedestal sink, and fan, though the fan was noisy and you don't have an option to have it on or not. Towels were clean but rough; tissues and toilet paper are soft.
Interestingly they have smoking rooms. The non-smoking rooms are on one side, the smoking rooms on the other.
