Good: Very clean. Lots of choices at breakfast. Conveniently located just off the interstate. Reliable WiFi. Decent cable. Approximately 28 pillows on the bed (the useful pillows, not those "why are there all these weird shaped pillows on the bed" pillows). The pool looked very inviting. Fridge and microwave in the room.
Bad: Nosier than average - especially when neighbors thought it was okay for their toddlers to run up and down the hall while the parents stood outside my door talking.
About those HVAC units - the control was on the unit. While it had an "auto" setting and a temperature setting, that just determined the temperature of the air that would then constantly blow. I even turned if "off" and it mysteriously came back on every 20 minutes. The only way to stop the beast - unplug it. And this wasn't an issue, because even though it was 15 degrees outside, the hotel room remained plenty (too) warm all night. So in winter time this isn't a problem - you can just unplug it. But in summer it would be extraordinarily annoying to either have the thing run all night or have to turn it off.
The stairwells smell of smoke. Don't know if they have a smoking floor, but people stand outside the exterior door (and in winter leave the door open for warmth) . . . and so the smoke comes into the motel.
Atrocious: The "exercise room" is an absolute joke. Kudos to whoever took the picture on the website that makes it look larger than the 5' x 8' space it occupies.
Average: The beds are a bit on the hard side, but got a good night's sleep. No soda or ice machine on the 3rd floor - just a bit annoying having to traipse down a level.
Summary: Nothing super special, but also no deal breakers. If you're in the area - feel comfortable choosing this motel.
