I struggled with giving this place three or four stars. We recently spent two nights here: once traveling north to see family, and then again on the way back.
On the plus side. The hotel is conveniently located off of the interstate, right in the middle of a shopping/restaurant district. McDonalds is literally across the street. Starbucks is within 5 minutes for those who like to get their day started that way. Check in was quick and the desk staff was friendly and professional. Rooms have been recently redecorated and are outfitted with microwaves, mini fridge and a coffee maker (though the quality of the coffee should be listed as a minus. Remember, Starbucks is close if you MUST have your fix.) The room was generally clean.
On the minus side. We stayed on the second floor both nights. We were to the right of the elevator one night, to the left the other. Elevator noise was not a problem, but a seating area in front of the elevator was a natural congregating place. We could hear the conversations word for word in our room. If you were father down the halls you could avoid this problem, I suppose, so you might want to request a room down the way. While the rooms had been redecorated, they were still not in good shape. A large, red stain was in the carpet of one room. The walls were pretty beat up in both. However, those things were minor compared to the room odor. In the first, there was a mild, smokey/musty smell which I just chalked up to the realities of an older motel. However, the second night we were suddenly overwhelmed with the smell of cigarette smoke. It seemed strongest in the bathroom so I assume it was coming through the vent duct work. Turning on the exhaust fan (and closing the bathroom door) seemed to take care of the problem.
Was the room safe, clean and comfortable? Yes. However, the overall condition of the rooms and the odors - especially considering the room rate - keeps this one from getting a higher rating from me.
