I stayed here on and off for several months while working in the area and have slept in many of the rooms. Over the six months of coming and going to Mansfield I noticed that the carpets and showers had been re-done and the bedding replaced. No, it's still not luxurious, and yes, the building is older and well-worn, but the beds and bathrooms are clean. There are microwaves and mini fridges in the room for extended stay visitors.
In response to some of the other reviews (yikes!): I never once saw bugs in any of the rooms I stayed in, nor did I ever wake up itchy. I never worried about bringing home stowaway bugs in my luggage. I accidentally left a few articles of clothing behind on my first visit and when I returned a month later a member of the maid staff recognized me and returned my belongings. She had kept them set aside just in case I came back. I never had anything stolen. My interactions with the owners have always been positive. Once when I forgot to make myself a reservation, I arrived very late at night to discover that they had no vacancies, but the owners allowed me to sleep in their guest room upstairs until they had a room for me the next day. They're a very nice family.
The Mansfield Inn is on the main street and a very short walk to a cafe, a pizza place, a tex-mex restaurant/craft-brew 6 pack store, a brewing company/pub, a bar, and a convenient store/gas station.
All hotels and motels in Mansfield are more expensive than they would be elsewhere because of the large quantity of natural gas personnel that stay in the area for work. You can pay twice as much and stay at the Comfort Inn a mile away (close to only one terrible restaurant), but I found my extended stays at the Mansfield Inn quite nice. After working 13 hours and commuting it was nice to be able to WALK just a minute down the street and grab a drink or dinner.
This is a standard motel. It's not a place for Prima Donnas or otherwise high maintenance travelers.
