Fair 4.0
A very standard motel. I checked in late but the person staffing the front desk was very short and abrupt with me. It took ten minutes to check in when there was no one else around and he had to scan my ID twice, all while shushing me with his hand when I'd say anything.

This hotel is probably the worst place I’ve ever stayed in. Me and my wife booked a king room with a spa tub ($97), but when we arrived he said he would not give us that room and put us in a two queen regular bedroom ($49 straight from their website and $47 through Expedia). He would not offer us a refund or adjust the price for the cheaper room so we had to pay $100 for a lesser room. The room itself was hot (ac was almost nonexistent), pillows had yellow sweat stains, microwave was broken and number pad was dirty and caked with food, mini fridge was rusty, on the floor, and smelled bad, shower had mold growing in the corner, bath tub slip mat was dirty and yellowed, we only received one towel and two wash rags. One top of this the guy at the front desk was very rude and not hospitable by any means. If you really value your dollar, stay away from here. Seriously. Don’t get a room here. I wish I would’ve listened to the reviews myself.

The bathroom wasn't cleaned from whoever was before me. On the positive side the room was cheap.

Single Ladies be careful.
The man at the front desk openly hit on me telling me repeatedly how pretty I am and telling me he put me in a room close to him. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was also clean. The little table in the room had smears on it and had not been cleaned throughly.

IMO the receptionist/owner is the biggest asshat you could imagine. The lobby is like a time warp to the 70's. I could not be paid to stay here and since it was the last room in town I drove another 100 miles just to find a better motel.
