My husband, daughter and I stopped here for the night last night. First, the good - the room was clean, bed fairly comfortable, and it was the only place open in an area with only two motels in sight when we were traveling through late at night.
Now, for the less pleasant - we had a non smoking room, but the entire motel has the odor of stale smoke, including our room. The one container of shampoo was in a packet rather than a bottle. and scissors were required to open.
We got up this morning for breakfast hoping to fill up before getting back on the road. We shouldn't have bothered - the waffles tasted like the batter had gone bad, the milk had turned (likely because it was in a bucket of melted ice rather than the mini fridge next to it), the scrambled eggs were watery and tasted horrible, almost like they'd been reheated several times over the course of the week. The only thing that was slightly edible were stale mini bagels with cream cheese.
Overall, this is an okay place to stop for the night - provided you don't plan on using the shampoo and stay far away from the breakfast.
