Rarely do I ever stay at a motel that has a deposit but usually it is a key deposit but here this motel charges a fifty dollar deposit if you pay cash. I'm on limited funds and this hurt. I don't have a credit card. The lady at the counter who took my money told me that in order for me to get all or a portion of the money back at the time of check out they would have somebody from housekeeping inspect the room. To protect myself, I took pictures of every blemish and wrinkle that was already in the room just to prove that I didn't do them. Because of this, I didn't get much sound sleep because of worry. When I did check out, all I had to do was sign my name at the bottom of the receipt that I had been given at check-in and I got my money back in whole.
Here is another motel that had an unrestricted wifi network but needed a password. The router wasn't broadcasting the right information to get to the login page. I had to connect my cellphone to the network to get the right ip address for the login in page. This motel should just go with a password protected network and skip the login page.
The air conditioner / heater unit worked but it made loud strange ticking sounds at irregular times. Don't know why there was a useless thermostat on the wall. The bathroom sink and the shower didn't drain properly.
For people who have mobility issues, make sure that you get a room right at the handicap ramps (directly across from them)..The covered walkways are too narrow for walkers , wheelchairs (manual or motorized) so you would be out of luck if there wasn't a handicap ramp close. The housekeeping carts barely fit.
For breakfast, the only thing offered sort of hot was the waffles that you heat up in at a toaster. My advice would be to just go to the Huddle House next door,
The room did have a large flat-screen tv, microwave, and mini-fridge.
