I should preface that the housekeeping staff at this place was decent.
The motel is what was awful!
They allowed a semi-tracter trailer to park just outside the parking lot which is where half the rooms face- the problem was that this truck was a refrigerator truck that had to be constantly started and stopped all night- it was loud enough to hear with the windows closed and the AC on.
Each night a few trains go rumbling by, where you'd wake and think you were in My Cousin Vinny's movie. - Not the motel's fault- but very distrurbing none-the-less.
The pool was gross- black murky green water was quite unappealing-even if it was not the season to swim.
The blankets were ratty and worn-the ceiling in the bathroom was spotted with mold-
the tub was so dirty that it would be impossible to clean- it should have been replaced-there was no bathroom vent- the carpet was stained- a light was broken and you can only watch what is programed on the TV- granted all the major networks [CBS-ABC-NBC-CNN] were on but no FOX-no discovery-history-A&E etc. When we arrived the TV would not work and it had to programed- you couldn't hook-up an XBox or DVD to it-so if you had kids that wanted to play games or watch a movie- you had to purchase through them- or purchase a limitted number of Nintendo games.
We had a fire alarm go off at 2 AM because they switched from AC to heat and it obviously burned some dust and had to evacuate-however they failed to be sure every guest evacuated-which if it was a real fire would be a disaster!
We made our reservation through orbitz and wanted to upgrade to a suite- we were unable to do so- but given the choice to pay for the suite in addition to already paying for the rooms that were paid for. [They only had 2- and given their name- Baymont Inn & Suites-
we were surprised].
If you're planning on staying here- think twice.
