“Adequate, cheap and clean, with one exception”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

This is one of those cases where "it is what it is," a budget motel off a highway exit, no frills, just a place to hang your hat for the night. The major advantage to this place is that it's about as cheap a lodging as you can find just about anywhere in the state. Predictably, the decor is old, the TV is old, the telephone is ancient, furniture is a bit warped, and the bedding looked tired... but for the most part the room was very clean. The sheets were clean and the bed was surprisingly comfortable. A/C was loud but worked fine. It was a non-smoking room and it indeed did not smell like smoke, unlike so many places that convert rooms to non-smoking while the stench still lingers. Bathroom is a bit of a tight squeeze but was very clean, except for one major sticking point: the shower curtain in the small stand-up shower was overdue for replacement. A bit gross, I might even say.

For the price, you can't really knock this place. I'd pay an extra couple of bucks if it meant a new shower curtain, though.

We lived in Orange most of our lives and recently moved to NC. I had never had the need to rent of the only 2 motels in town. We chose the Travel Inn over the Executive Inn due to reviews. (FYI both hotels are owned by the same family). Our check in process was simple, the staff was very helpful, and the rooms was clean. We ended up having a lot of visitors and the staff brought us lawn chairs for our comfort. I have stayed at 4-5 star hotels before and have never been treated as well as I was at the Travel Inn. The room was inexpensive and right next to the highway. When we take trips back up north I WILL be staying here again and again!

Seems to be a vanishing breed of motels, cheap, basic and clean. You seem to more and more get expensive or gross. This had a comfortable bed and clean room. Not the ritz, but not priced like the ritz.

Chose to stay here based purely on price. $50 is a good price and about two-thirds the price of the big chains. You get a safe secure room, a reasonable selection of tv channels, a fridge and a microwave. Soap and towels in the bathroom and clean sheets on the bed. Yes the rooms are shabby and showing their age but everything works. If you're on a budget it's a good choice.

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend in October.
First the good things:
The receptionist was friendly and welcoming.
The room was clean and adequate.
Now the bad things:
There were live and dead bugs in every corner of both the bathroom and the bedroom.
There were stains on the ceilings.
The room had a funky smell.
I don't think we would stay here again.

The motel is quite basic, but for the price its an excellent place to sleep for a night or two. The room is quite spacious, has huge TV and refrigerator, the decor is a bit dated, but adequate. The lady on reception was extremely friendly and welcoming, this was really nice, and I was also offered a coffee in the morning. Overall, would recommend if you only need a bed for a night. Its just off Route 2 as well.

This little motel is run by a husband-wife team who are friendly, personable, and service-oriented. The room was small and decor outdated, but it was clean and the bed comfortable. Microwave, mini-fridge, hair dryer. Shower was small but everything worked and we only paid $55 on a Saturday night. Recommend this place to cost-conscious travelers. Don't expect 3-star accommodations and you won't be disappointed. Right off Route 2 on Route 202, minutes from the Athol Hannaford, plenty of gas stations and mini-marts around too.
