4/10 Fair

This motel has made some efforts to update the rooms but has missed the mark. The room was obviously smoked in as the smell lingered and was apparent the minute we walked in. The storm door didn’t have a screen and one of the windows was missing. The window also did not have a screen, the window didn’t stay open without propping it up and it didn’t lock when down. The bed, a double, was very uncomfortable and not much unlike sleeping on a sheet of plywood. It was clean but only had one thin blanket and three pillows. No extra linens were provided. The bathroom had obviously been re-tiled and appeared clean. The check in was underwhelming at best. Nothing offensive but nothing special. The guy took my money, gave me my key and that was about it. There are no amenities, no breakfast, or anything special that I can tell. The room has an older microwave and mini fridge. No coffee maker. Styrofoam cups. I was looking for a cheap hotel and was not expecting a five star hotel but would definitely spend a little extra next time.

Not recommended
I don't understand why an owner will take reservation when he knows there is no power on site. I want to be reimbursed.

2/10 Poor

I did not stay there. They did not have any rooms and the place was in poor condition. Some from the storm but mostly just bad condition. Not good when you think you have a reservation and then you get there and find out you didn’t. May have worked out for the best Thanks Kevin
