Tiffany's was not terrible, but I expected far more bang for the buck than I got. At $170/night, it was the most expensive room of its size in town, and in fact, larger rooms were available at that rate, so I expected it to be top notch.
The window AC unit leaked into the unit, landing on the bathroom vanity. The unit was not well cleaned. The pool was nice enough, but the scum line had not received any attention in quite some time. The outdoor showers near the second pool (in front of the main "motel" building vs. the new one behind the condo building) had a stop work order posted, citing no permits for the work.
The walls are thin, making the place really noisy even if the patrons are not. We had some noisy teens above us, but the office was closed so we had nobody to call unless we wanted to call the cops---which would have been tricky, given that there is no landline phone in the rooms. The kitchenette was pretty nice, but it was awkward to use the cooktop because of where it was installed, and the fridge is a dorm fridge with freezer, limiting the fridge space considerably.
I found the bed comfortable, but the pillows were bricks. Between that, the noise, and the light (only a sheer covered the patio door, meaning it was fully light in the room by about 6:30am) I didn't sleep well.
I would go back for about $115/night in that market. I would take my own pillow, something to cover the patio door, and an extra cooler. I would not pay $170 again.
