I was worried when we parked because the outer area seems dated but the room was clean and comfortable (although somewhat dated).
I think the thing that brings the outdoor area down is tha they have black outdoor carpeting on the stairs and walkways which will just never look clean, even if it's vacuumed daily! It just shows all the leaves, etc that blow onto it. I get the feeling they are doing some renovations because the carpet had been pulled off one staircase.
Back to the positives: room was fine but dark unless lamps are on. (there are lots of lamps: two bedside lamps plus three others). Bathroom area was fine and clean. Breakfast was good but average: waffles, bagels, toast, cereal, hard boiled eggs, Danishes, muffins, fruit, juice, milk, coffee, hot chocolate, oatmeal packets.
The motel is just about a block and a half from the campus where we were attending the Shakespeare Festival so that was a plus as well.
Good place to stay.
