10/10 Exceptional

4/10 Fair

Property is in need of updating. Not such a big deal in itself. But the room was dirty, cobwebs on the ceiling, dirt in the corners floor was dirty, headboard was cockeyed on well as was TV. Holes in wall were filled and primed but not painted. A hole in the bathroom wall from the doorknob was stuffed with toilet paper. The coffee pot was not cleaned and the hairdryer was covered in a greasy yellow sludge. We were on our way to go camping so I had cleaning supplies with me, but never thought I would have to use them before the room was fit to stay in. The single king room we reserved was given to an irrate customer who refused the room they had given her. Our room apparently wasn't ready to rent out, but they did, and we later found it had no blankets, and none were available. We were offered an additional spread, but it was thin and we were cold all night. Breakfast was mini muffins and coffee.

2/10 Poor

My room wasn’t ready when I arrived; they forgot to get me towels; when I finally DID get towels, they were gross; the WiFi was down and nobody cared to try to fix it. A better name for this place is the “Lack of Quality Inn”.

10/10 Exceptional

Would stay again
The gentleman at the front desk was very nice and welcoming. Our room was actually a lot cleaner than I expected for a two-star motel. Many of the furnishings look to be brand new. All in all it was a very pleasant stay which was nice considering we were in town for a family funeral.

8/10 Very good

People really nice and it was clean enough, but re-cleaned room. Ice machine broken, laundry broken, water heater broken first night. Very convenient location to get what's needed
