The big plus of this motel was free local calls and the fact the air conditioning worked. The big minus was that instead of putting the duvet in a duvet cover, they put it between 2 sheets, which means it's a permanent challenge to keep the sheets between you and the duvet (and I don't imagine many other people were successful either). In our room, the toilet dripped (clean water luckily) into a bucket that had been placed behind it. The rooms had clearly been partially refurbished, with the bed looking like it was brand new and the rest looking like a mixture of new and old.
Another challenge in the room was not to drop the towels into the toilet from the towel rack directly above it - there wasn't space or hooks to have them anywhere else. The pool was closed (not just for the night) and a nasty shade of green, so don't plan on swimming there. It was pretty quiet until 1 am when a tour bus turned up and I could feel every step they took along the (US: 2nd floor, GB: 1st floor) walkway along the building. Most people will probably be lucky and not have this happen to them, and I heard some of the guests at breakfast telling others that this hadn't woken them up.
Also, we chose this inn because of the free wifi, but this stopped working half way through the evening and when we rang up to tell them this, they simply told us that it was working (it was indeed working again in the morning).
The breakfast was a cheap version of the breakfast of pretty well every other buffet breakfast I had in the US - the same sorts of things on offer, but the cheapest possible version (not entirely surprising given the price).
I cautiously recommend this inn if price is very important to you and you can cope with the problems listed above.
