“Nightmare on Post Road”
Reviewed November 20, 2005

Do not choose this motel based on the picturesque website - the place is terrible. I spent two nights there in November of 2005 and could not believe how much I paid for an uncomfortable stay.

The motel, inside and out, was not clean. The room was filthy and the grounds were littered with junk. The heat in my room did not work so they had plugged in a space heater, the refrigerator did not function properly, the kitchen light was broken, the bathroom sink faucet leaked and the water in the shower never got above lukewarm. The rug was dirty and stained, the drawers on the nightstand were broken, and there were holes in the wall. A note on the door gave instructions on how to call the office, but the office was never open and there was no phone in the room!

Apparently there is no maid service here; the towels were not changed, no new toilet paper was put up to replace the empty roll and the trash was not emptied. Someone did change the broken light before my second night, but other than that, no service what-so-ever was performed.

I cannot believe I paid over $200 dollars to stay in this place. There are far nicer places in the area available for less money. I recommend that you pass this motel by.
