We stayed at the Towne Motel for one night during "Fair Week." While the outside of the motel looked great, as soon as I opened the door to our room I felt like I'd stepped into the 1970's.
Dark paneling, old fashioned bedspreads, rusty brass lamps, and tired old furniture.
I had to actually get up and unplug the television to make it stop humming so we could sleep.
The room was sparkling clean, but there was an odor - almost like cat urine, but most likely from the old rug that had probably been wet many times.
We awoke in the morning to water pipes squealing (someone in the next room must have been showering) and people walking by our paper thin door to go to the continental breakfast.
The motel did have a nice pool that looked clean. The continental breakfast was perfectly fine with a nice selection and great coffee. The staff was friendly enough.
Overall, I would probably not stay at the Towne Motel again. I feel that $81.00 per night (even during Fair Week) is a bit much for the tiny, outdated room that we got.
