Not only is the photo misleading, but we paid over $75 for a room that we found advertised for $49.95 for one night. The decor was dated and busted. Cracked trim, peeling paint and only one pillow per bed. The place was infested with gnats and tiny red-eyed flies. I also believe it is a transients hotel as I saw a lot of grills set out on balconies (which I believe is in violation of hotel regulations.) The check-in personnel, Miss Megan (proudly printed on her name badge), was dismissive. The location is in the flight path of the nearby regional airport as well as nestled between two other lodging establishments. One of which was recently featured on the news where a mother of a missing boy (for over a year now) was discovered to be living. I would not ever recommend this hotel, not even to an enemy. I did not feel safe or clean staying here. When visiting friends who live in the Cherry Valley area, they asked "Why did you stay there????" in shock and dismay. We thought it was the cheapest place to stay. It wasn't. Lesson learned.
