“OK deal but some problems”
Reviewed May 30, 2006

The cleanliness was somewhat better than the other reviewer mentioned, it was not great and the linens are kinda dingy. The price is right for this motel, but you should also be aware it's on a busy corner and it's pretty noisy too- I was woken up several times throughout the night. Also, the rooms are directly off the parking lot.

This is a tiny roadside hotel located right when you get into town in Sparta--a town which claims to be the "bicycling capital", and the trail from Sparta to Elroy really is worth the ride. This hotel however, was not.

I wish we had not guaranteed the room with a credit card, because after seeing the parking lot, we would have kept right on driving. There were several rather questionable characters lurking about--weekly renters? Several cars that looked like they belonged in the junk yard, one of which had a completely smashed windshield held together with duct tape.

2 of the towels we pulled out of the rack were filthy with big black marks--obviously, the cleaning staff just left them in the rack without checking to see whether they had been used. Wetting one slightly to wipe the floor told me the floor wasn't much cleaner. The toilet was clean inside, but not outside, and the sides were really dirty--and I won't go further because I don't think you want to know.

Fortunately, I carry cleaning supplies with me, and after 2 hours, and lots of bleach, the room was habitable. I also carry a portable alarm to hang on hotel doors, or I don't think I would have been able to get to sleep.

I'm giving this hotel a 2 instead of a 1, because we've slept in worse.
