Nope, its not a girl in a flatbed ford, its the Quality Inn! And chances are, if you take the Winslow exit, it will be the very first thing you see, as its right there on the corner by the ramp. Having taken a wrong turn coming from Phoenix en route back home to Salt Lake (dont ask) I really just wanted to find a place where I wouldnt go crazy from the sound of my own wheels; at the discounted price of 65; a little expensive yet the cheapest I could find in the area, I took it, easy.
Its a older property, you can tell by the inside, the outside is clearly cosmetic makeover. I was actually taken aback by the age, the lobby looks fresh out of the 90s, while the hallway, the 70s. Ripped carpet and scratches and even a few dents in the walls. The staircase (i forget if there was a elevator) was very unattractive. For 65 bucks I was not impressed, and prepared for the worst when getting ready to see the room. Pleasant surprise, the room wasnt all that bad. Actually, it was very nice, reddish hue and all (bed and wallpaper). The bathroom did show some age but considering you pay for a room, not the building it was pretty good. The bed was comfortable, however I do believe it is a non smoking hotel, so lighten up while you still can.
Considering I got in so late and slept in I did not see many people or the breakfast, not even a girl or a flatbread board. I did however get to see the pool in the morning, one of those indoor atrium models. The pool was moderate shape and temperature however the hot tub was so small it could fit about 2 people or one obese person [dont even try to understand], 6 am, so open up im climbin in!
There was one computer for guest use and a 24 hour dennys down the road. Winslow is a sleepy town in the middle of nowhere, Id be curious what brings people here; as I wa runnin' down the road- a blogger I met at the coffee shoppe' across the street (very nice one at that, dog park and all) told me was traveling cross country and was blogging about the old route 66, which runs right through town.
The room itself ranks better then average, but the building is just about poor, so split the difference and a average rating it gets for the price you pay, which considering Winslow standards wont blow your cover and will loosen your load and will save me.
I guess depending your budget you may loose or you may win with this one, and so, just try to find a place to make your stand.
