We visit family each summer and usually stay in guest room at my Mom's co-op but much of the building was flooded this cold winter when a pipe burst, including the guest room.
This was the only reasonably priced motel I could find that was available for the entire time. The room is pretty small for a month's worth of stuff but fine for a few nights.
Pros: excellent K bed with pillow top mattress. I almost always have back problems with motel beds but had NONE the entire time. I slept like a log except for July 4 - there was loud and boisterous partying in our wing until 2:45 a m. I was leery of retribution if I complained and thought management should have shut it down at least at Midnight.
It was pretty darn awful. If they didn't want to contend with it, the should have called the sheriff. It was that bad.
housekeeping was satisfactory.
Lots of outlets for computers and phones. Nice large TV.
I always want a fridge as I eat my own yogurt and apples in the a m and like to keep wine chilled, so happy to have that. Not having breakfast in motel not a problem for hubby with Denny's next door. We'd rather sleep cheap, esp when on the road for a month.
Cons: tub drain problematic.
A towel rack on the wall by the sink would be most helpful.
Coffee pot near an outlet would also be helpful. The plug did not reach down behind the microwave and there sure wasn't room for it on the vanity. I much prefer a 4-cup maker to the single cup maker so spent a lot of time making morning coffee!
All in all, it was a good value for the money.
