Old and poorly maintained. From the road it looks like a vintage WWII motel. My room was dark and dismal. Old fashioned, dark brown, indoor/outdoor carpeting was used throughout and it was ripped up in a few places. The ceiling was the cheapest tile they could find and it was stained in multiple rooms. The bathroom had mold around the tub and the toilet seat was stained and gouged in several places - a breeding ground for germs and disease. The stove was greasy and both the cutting board and the tiny counter top were stained and deeply etched from cutting and chopping - not healthy. The sleeper sofa was old and tired and very uncomfortable. Doors, furniture, and walls were scratched and smudged. The bed in the master BR was comfortable and the ones in the other bedroom were OK. One side of the closet in the Master BR was unusable due to the large hot water heater that stood there. The other side had 4" copper pipe running down the middle [sewer pipe from the second floor]. The venetian blind was missing a few slats. They charged $170 per night. I checked around and there Inns/motels in the vicinity that were significantly less expensive. I have never stayed in a worst place in 20 years.
