DO NOT try to stay here! I wanted a clean, safe, comfortable motel for a short road trip and thought I had found it after reviewing a few "mom & pop" motels online. WRONG - their website is a total misrepresentation of what you see when you arrive. Ditto on the bad reviews. I knew immediately when I saw the room I couldn't stay. The door to the outside had a tissue paper plugged in the peephole and the door was crooked in the door frame, leaving a large enough crack that if it were snowing, you'd get some of that in your room! I always look at the mattress edges - they were filthy. Sheets? I wouldn't let my dog sleep on them. The overall feeling of the room was dark, dingy & dirty! When the woman at the front desk offered me a look at another room, I agreed because I was tired from driving - and hoping for the best. WRONG - it was just a bigger room with more of the same. When I asked to speak with the manager (Nick) to ask for a refund I was told he was not available but, since he had my phone number, he'd call me. I'm not holding my breath. Fortunately, I found a clean, comfortable motel 3 miles from there - a Comfort Inn conveniently located at I80.
Lesson learned - do your homework!
