“Not too bad at all”
Reviewed August 18, 2009

I stayed here for one night, looking for somewhere really cheap...my room was less than $40 total...right by the Interstate and within a mile or less of lots of places to eat and a huge outlet mall...very nice staff, most helpful...large old-timey "motor court", all rooms at ground level...WiFi a little slow but worked fine, a pleasant surprise...basic but clean and no bad odors, bathroom was clean but Spartan...window A/C worked fine, never cut the TV on, so I don't know about it...I use ear plugs but it seemed quiet ...linens were clean, bedspreads were very old, should be tossed...lots of towels but not much hot water...no real minuses with this place, it was clean, quiet enough and didn't have any smokey or "funny" smells, GREAT PRICE, seemed safe...I actually slept very well here and would recommend it to all solo travelers looking for a super bargain.

This motel was a pleasant surprise, especially for the low price. It was clean, the front desk person was helpful, and the rate was phenomenal. It had a nice homey feel, and was definitely family-oriented. Would highly recommend!

I stayed here about 5 years ago on my way up to new york but the place has made some improvements since then. It was a good deal for the price before, but I was suprised by the room this time. It's located right off of I-95, the room was clean and looked like they've replaced the carpet and heater/ac. Last time it was a bit noisy (nothing unbearable), but the newer unit worked well and wasn't noisy. Anyway, can't beat the price and location, and the room was pretty nice as well.

If you're looking for convenience, comfort, and a reasonable price you've got to go to Village Motor Lodge! It's right off I-95, about two minutes from the outlet mall.
Everything was clean and well-maintained, and the staff was very friendly. I will certainly return to this motel on my subsequent trips down south.

If you want CHEAP that's what you will get. Everything is old! The bathroom was dirty. The grout was in sad need of cleaning. The tub was so old & stained, we wouldn't even take showers. The towels were clean but ripped and torn! The mirror was losing it's backing. The counter tops need to be replaced. The lights on the ceiling had dead bugs in the covers. The carpet was dark, worn and old! The screen was broken. What more can I say. You get what you pay for!!! Never again!!!

My family and I, along with a family friend, wanting to get out of town for the weekend and take in some small town offerings (Ava Gardner Museum - Outlet stores - Flea Markets), while avoiding the holiday crowds, chose to go about 1&1/2 hrs from home. I selected this motel after reading the reviews and then calling to get a price. It is a nice, locally owned operation. If your looking for all the comforts of home, you came to the wrong place, but don't let this deter you. For the overnighter traveling up/down I-95 this is a good deal (2 ppl - $5@ extra per). Motel entrance actually sits right in the middle of the on/exit ramp on Northbound side. Styling may be a bit unique, actually feels like a campground/cabin, but comfortable all the same. A/C didn't cool the room as well as would have liked though. *If you need an Internet connection this is dial-up, you need your own service provider.

All-in-all we were pleasantly surprised with this motel and enjoyed our weekend getaway.
