Stayed recently with my wife and kids in a non-smoking room with two queen beds. The first night my daughter couldn't stop coughing once we put her to bed. Discovered all the bedding wreaked of cigarette smoke and even had cigarette burn holes all over the blankets. They mix the bedding between smoking and non smoking rooms obviously.
Right behind this motel there is a boarded up and abandoned motel attracting all manner of who knows what.
Our room had cobwebs on the ceilings, rips and stains on all the chairs and weird unidentifiable stains all over the hairdryer in the bathroom.
The free breakfast included cereal, mini bagels, milk, toast and english muffins. Your basic standard continental breakfast but lacking the typical waffle iron you would expect to find even in a La Quinta. My wife could not stomach the english muffin she tried, it was old or something.
On top of the lovely accomodations, we got hit with a surprise pet fee of $32 even when Travelocity specifically told me there was no pet fee and that's the sole reason we picked this motel.
Oh yeah one more thing the fire extinguisher near the lobby had a huge hole in the plastic cover. Not sure what other fire code violations they'd find.
