There's a scene in Blazing Saddles where paint is tossed onto plywood to build a fake Rockridge. Here paint was used to disguise a hotel who has seen too many sunsets! Well pardner, don't let the discount price think you'll get a bargain here. The building and furnishings are old. The guarantee of free wireless means you need to leave your room and move to the little dining area in the lobby...but that was only after I made 7 phone calls to the service provider who knew less than I did about troubleshooting a connection. The place does offer a free morning breakfast. You can't go wrong with yogurt and oatmeal but the microwaveable pancakes and curious meat offerings left me longing for the lone prairie. The bathrooms were recently refurbished and wanted me to shout "Yehaw!" The bed was good, too, and beat sleeping under the stars. Saddle up the horse and mosey down the road further. I think there is a better option and yes, even Howard Johnson has an outpost nearby. As for service....front desk clerks are seldom there. Wait patiently until a hidden camera lets the clerk know you're waiting cause they're in the back someplace doing who knows what.
