This motel is fine for a one night's stay, but I wouldn't go for more than that. I felt like I had stepped back in time to a true "motor inn". However, I must admit the beds are wonderful! It might be the best hotel/motel bed I've ever had. I did, however, feel like I always needed to wear my shoes - even with my PJs on. I would not recommend this place to a single woman - I wasn't traveling alone and really didn't feel that safe.

Okay, the outside of this hotel is very old. A friend of mine told me they had luxury rooms for around sixty dollars, so I wend ahaed and tried, but the outside will make you wonder. Its clean and all, but it looks like something from the pages of yesteryear. Anyway, by Faith I went ahead and WOW! The room is better than the Marriott! They have a mattress like the heavenly bed Westin offers! There was also a microwave, refridgerator, iron, and coffee maker. Thanks to that mattress, it was the best nights sleep I've had for years. The continental breakfast was also very good.
