I do not know if the change in ownership took place between the time the previous reviewer stayed there and when I stayed there, but there has been a change. My experience was pleasant, if not excellent. I, too, noticed some cleaning problems (cobwebs), and the heating/cooling system needs to be replaced!
My major concern was comfort. I felt crowded even though the room was large, and found that, though the bathrooms are larger than you will find in a more modern motel, there are no vanities! The sinks are pedestal sinks, and there is nowhere to put anything down. If you are staying for several days, this is a real aggravation.
The staff was pleasant and helpful to me.
Pluses are location on the same side of the highway, Interstate and railroad as the fast-food restaurants, free wireless network, etc. The condition of the parking lot has improved greatly over the last five years -- which was the last time I had stayed there.
You might try the "Crossroads" building located on the property. It is actually the old Crossroads Hotel, which was located on the east edge of town many years ago, has more comfortable rooms but is disconnected from the main building. I do not know if there are both smoking and nonsmoking rooms in that building.
