2/10 Poor

Horrible is an understatement
I am not sure what to say. The room was horrible. It was used as a storage room. It had spider webs in window sill. Also, there was paint pan and trash from someone lunch on the table.

8/10 Very good

The triple room does indeed have three queen beds. One is in a separate 'room' with a closable door. I put room in quotes because you can hardly walk around the bed without awkwardly turning your feet to fit. There is not really dishware as indicated on the site and the coffee maker didn't work but there is a working mini fridge. We couldn't find anyone to check out with so we had to use the key Dropbox. The location is convenient. The beds are comfy enough. The shower has great pressure and the hot water gets really hot (and stays that way through the whole family's showers) and the cold water is refreshingly cold even in the heat of summer.

Place needs a lot of work - we were disappointed vs the reviews we had read.

4/10 Fair

Made a reservation weeks in advance for a room with a king bed. They only had a queen bed when we checked in, because he “didn’t know we were coming”. He was very nice and apologetic about it, but still annoying. Room smelled like cat pee and cigarettes, even after leaving the windows open for hours. Dirty old tub. No way I’d use the coffee machine. Uncomfortable saggy bed. For $60 you can’t expect much. If it weren’t for the smell, and the downgraded room, I’d give a better review.

Not a great experience. The motel is very shabby and run down.

6/10 Good

The outside view of the property needs considerable maintenance so curb view would be attractive. Interior looked good but could use some updating.
