For this location we were cost driven as we just needed a place to grab some sleep between two busy touring days. There were other similarly priced motels and since this was a chain, we expected a little bit better than what we got.
A well posted notice on the office entry door informed us that the water needed to be boiled. I asked the check-in agent why the notice was posted. She indicated there had been an unacceptable elevation of sulfur in the water that had already been addressed and they were waiting for a new inspection before removing the notice. We noticed the odor, did a quick wash up in the sink and went to bed. In the morning the sulfur smell was even greater and we opted to pass on taking a shower.
The room was clean and spacious though in need of a good painting. The tub we never used still had a sizable partially worn off product sticker on the face of the tub. The tub appeared to be at least a year old. There was no light in the entry "foyer" which was where hangers hung on an pole within the foyer. The lighting was poor in general, the mattresses were comfortable enough though very lightweight and easily slid on the box when you sat or lied down on them. There was a simple to use a/c heater unit and the Wi-fi was OK in our room. The breakfast was coffee, tea, Sunny-D, bread and bagels for toasting, mini muffins and mini buns and bananas. No comfortable place to eat it so take the tray from your room and bring it back to your room to eat.
In general the whole motel needs an update,if not an upgrade.
