I kind of like the nostalgic hotels as long as they are kept well and this one isn't too bad. This is a typical outside entry hotel with small rooms from pre-interstate times. Besides the tile colors, the bathroom had a bottle cap opener mounted which you seniors will remember from times past. The owners keep renovating the place and much refurbishment has been done. There was a small window AC unit in the back of the room with curtains carefully pinned around it for privacy. The full size bed was comfortable and there was a small desk, refrigerator, and microwave efficiently placed. The room was clean and recent carpet, light fixtures, and painting had been installed.
The room was lacking for a clothes rod to hang clothes although filled holes in the wall indicated that one was once provided. There was no hair dryer or iron but this is a no-frills economy-type place and I didn't expect these items. The shower had been replaced by a one-piece plastic unit but it was installed poorly and there was some mildew starting under the floor at the shower door bottom which I mentioned to the manager/owner. Also, there was one outlet that did not work.
My main complaint was the lack of a dead bolt on the door. There was one but it did not function and when I mentioned it to the manager he said they were soon to be replaced on all the doors. Some of the doors also have gaps on the bottom and could be sealed better.
But overall I had a comfortable, restful stay and it was a less expensive hotel which is what I was looking for. I would stay there overnight again.
