I've stayed here before, about two months ago and wasn't real happy about it so the next time I stayed next door at the Motel 6 and was less happy so I'm back again. Now I can't remember what wasn't right the first time ... but this time ...
When I go to check in, all the ask for is the last four digits of the card I paid with last time, then ask a couple of more questions to make sure it's me and give me a key. Wow, I'm surprised more places don't do that. When I get to a motel I'm ready for a motel, not a half hour chit-chat with the clerk.
Two issues with the room, minor. One, the door is missing it's numbers, the clerk says it 'just happened' but who knows. The other is that the upholstery on the chair at the desk is split, it seems to be from age and wear.
This is an older motel, I think it was still a Holiday Inn a few years ago when I started driving and has changed names a few times since.
The in-house restaurant still seems to draw a crowd, tonight I went next door to Bruff's but might try the in-house next time I'm in town.
