I booked this motel at the last minute and it was the only one with rooms available on Ratestogo. There was one bad review there but as I was in a hurry I ignored it - bad move! My 10 year old grandson walked in and said this place is dirty! When I went in I had to agree - there was some sort of hair all over the place, especially on the mat and also around the kitchen, even on the windowsill. The corners in the wet areas all had a build up of dirt. My grandsons refused to use the shower and only reluctantly used the toilet! We basically dropped off our gear, left in a hurry and only came back to sleep. The following morning we packed our bags and left. We used a couple of glasses and I was a bit disconcerted to see a sign asking us to wash all the dishes for the next occupant - I thought that was what you paid for in a motel - needless to say I rewashed them before using them as who knows how the previous occupant had washed them. Small thing I know, but it just contributed to the overall impression. On the plus side, the beds were comfortable and seemed clean enough. I don't mind old, but believe they should be clean. I definitely wouldn't recommend to anyone and in fact have already done the opposite and warned people not to stay there.
