This seems to be a fairly standard remodeled Red Roof motel. The location is not pretty, and there is some noise from the highway, but seems safe and there are some restaurant options nearby.
The rooms are clean and attractive. As with some others in the chain, the King rooms are tiny, so it can be better to choose a two-bed room or one of the larger king suites (actually the same size as the double rooms) with the fridge and microwave, but that typically costs more.
Red Roofs have upgraded a bit in recent years. Although the furnishings are flimsy, the rooms look pretty good, are well lit and comfortable. The towels are a little softer and thicker than they used to be. Shampoos still comes in a little packet. It's a little thing, but I really like the almond soap.
No breakfast and few other amenities is the biggest drawback. Motel was pretty busy when we were there--lots of people traveling through who arrive late and leave early.
If all you need is a clean and reasonably pleasant room to stay in with free wifi, there is no need to pay more.
