I have never given a motel a negative review because I do not need luxury, but ..this motel had clean sheets and a TV but that was the only thing acceptable. Going back a gravel road in the dark to find it was a little scarry, but that was just disappointing since I was hoping to find somewhere to get some food. I would not enter the office and considered leaving, because the office had caution tape across the windows marked "crime scene" and it truly looked stark...and the proprietor told my husband that it was just a halloween decoration. The columns outside the office were peeling all of the paint off.
The room was freezing when we walked in, the bathroom was horrible: the toilet seat was falling off; there were only two tiny towels to use, a shower that leaked all over the floor; there was a rusty baseboard heater behind the toilet and the veneer was coming off of the side of the sink next to the toilet with an ancient rusty light fixture above it. There were no blankets, only a seasoned bedspread, and when I sat on the bed it felt like I was sinking into a water balloon and when my husband sat on the other side it bounced me up in the air. There was no guide for the TV channels. There was a chair in the corner where wall paint was scraped off. The ceiling panels were all hanging loose.
My family told me I should not have expected better since we paid half what other motels would have cost, but I would have preferred not to pay even that much for a dive.
