Initially I was concerned because this hotel sits directly off the Highway. I thought road noise was going to interfere with sleeping. However, it was not at all noticeable unless an obscenely loud vehicle went by. The room was small but clean. The Air conditioner in the room liked to turn off and on a lot which is enough to annoy a light sleeper. But truly the most annoying part of this motel was the lady at the desk. She will tell you where you can find some grub but I wouldn't expect much else out of her. She had an overall aura of rudeness anytime you had to talk to her. Another piece of advice, don't try to get more than one bucket of ice from the ice machine. Even if you're the only one there on a Thurs. morning and the ice is full to the brim, she will turn you away.
Overall this motel scores high in location and price but low in service and sleep quality if you are a light sleeper.
