There is a sign in the lobby that says the entire motel is going to be rebuilt/remodeled in the near future. When making a reservation, you will want to ask the hotel when the remodel will start or whether it is done.
We stayed in room 119.
There were no maintenance issues. The carpeting is dark. The room was clean and comfortable. The bed was comfortable. We were not disturbed by the other tenants. However, we could hear someone walking in the room above us. Weekends are busy and room rates are higher on weekends. We paid $107 per night, which is still relatively low compared to other area lodging.
We parked our car within 30 feet of the room and did not have to carry our luggage up stairs or long distances. Parking is free in a part of town where you have to pay for parking everywhere else. The location is optimal for exploring the downtown on foot. Bicycles are loaned for free. The motel is located next to one of the many interconnecting bike paths in town. You can park your car at your room and not need it again until you leave town.
Across the street from the motel is a natural foods store called Alfa. They have excellent products. You can buy pizza by the slice or sandwiches there and eat very cheaply inside the market. You have a great selection of desserts from the bakery and drinks from the market. There are a lot of interesting foods and drinks to try.
Although the accomodations are not luxurious, this is an excellent place to stay.
I forgot to mention that there is a continental breakfast furnished by the motel. It features yoghurt and cereals, but no fruit. We chose to eat breakfast out.
Check in and out was quick and easy. The staff are personable.
We did not use the swimming pool, which is inconspicuously placed on the north side of the property near the street.
