I had reviewed this motel 2 years ago, on my drive from CA to NM, and felt it fair to give an update on what has changed since then. Just about the only two things that haven't changed and remain pleasant is a) its location, a quiet side road off the main drag that keeps you sheltered from the railway activity which can be quite prominent, noise-wise, in other parts of town, and b) a friendly front desk check-in. Otherwise time, maybe management, budget, inconsiderate guests or a combination of all factors have turned this Motel 6 into the budget motel one isn't surprised to experience when looking for an affordable accommodation. I had a non-smoking room on the first story facing the pool, not a good choice if you want quiet. The room itself was tidy but not clean, the bathroom sink did not drain, and there shower stall was pretty beat up and rusty. The was a peculiar odor in the room, like it hadn't been aired out in a year, or as if someone had hung up 6 day old socks. No refrigerator in the room and WiFi use costs $3 extra. Can't say anything about the pool other than the chlorine smell that promised to keep it as bacteria free as possible. Being only a few bucks cheaper than other options with higher ratings and better reviews here on TripAdvisor, I would choose one of those and not stay here again. Too bad, because 2 years ago this was a very decent place which is why I chose to stay here again.
