I just read some of the reviews, honestly, not great, but its not disgusting to condemn the place, geez. (remember...you really do pay for what you get...but in some cases, you ca also get ripped off with name brand and price gouging). I've stayed in higher end and chain hotels that were comparable or even worse. So in all fairness to the Palouse Inn, I am going to share my experience in a fair manner.
To start, this is my second stay here, prior being two years ago on last minute. Both times, I got a room for myself, but got two differently laid out rooms and sizes. I'm wondering if some parts of the motel is older. Oh well. I know what "wing" to ask for when getting a room. This recent trip I got room 103 (it faces the front of the motel). Last time was on the "side" wing upstairs (215, I think)..this room was cramped (roughly the size of an average sized home bedroom).
The Good: It was clean. Has a fridge, microwave, singel pod coffee maker, and 25 LCD Samsung TV (has free HBO too). I had two desks with chairs. Hair dryer, lots of towels, black out curtains. Right behind McDonalds and Car Wash.
The bad: They still use keys with tag thingy - too bulky for me. The room did have a musty smell, especially if the AC/ventalation has been off before entering. Again....I see this in many hotels and motels. Turn the AC/ventalation on, leave, then come back...the odor will have subsided. In the bathroom, this may annoy some folks, but there is only a modular shower (no tub/shower combo). Don't know why anyone would want to soak in a motel bathtub anyway. lol. ewwww. Pass for me. Wi-Fi worked, but had a weak signal...nonetheless, I was able to surf the net.
In any case, if you need a quick place to stay, and cheap. Try this place. Also, not sure if most of you know, you can ask to see the room, before taking it. If its not to your liking ask for another - simple. I recommend not being angry when asking to change...typically some may get defensive, and can ruin your entire stay. Ya know, like a restaurant...don't say anything bad before you get the food...who knows what "extra" ingredients may get on your place. Gross reality, but it does happen more often than you think.
Enjoy. I personally had a decent experience both times. I'm a happy person, so perhaps I got happy results.
