Pros: The staff was pleasant. The room was clean. The location provided easy access to the highway. The WiFi signal was strong.
Cons: Although I have stated that the room was clean, I did have a minor pest issue. Certainly no infestation or health concern. Just an unexpected guest.
Location: The motel is situation between Youngsville and Franklinton. There are; a nationally recognized drug store, grocery store, gas and fast food within 1m
Visiting my family in the Kittrel area this past week (9.12-19.16) and decided to book a room for a couple nights at this location. I have to admit what attracted me was it's proximity and price. I will base my rating on the merits of price vs expectations. I believe that you get what you pay for. That being said, I can happily recommend this motel to anyone who is looking for a place to stop for the night. Or, also, as a base to explore the area. The WiFi connection is strong. My room came with a mini-fridge and microwave. Which, I am not sure was listed in the room description, but a pleasant surprise. The other guests were a diverse crowd of traveling families, construction workers on assignment and locals looking for a night out of the house. The location being on US1 between Raleigh and Henderson, gives you easy access to the surrounding area. Particularly if, you are like me, and enjoy a good drive in the country. Be advised that traffic on US1 from Raleigh north to Franklinton does experience regular congestion on the weekdays between 3-6:00pm. It is a roadside motel in all of the traditional sense.

Pros: Great air conditioning and large room. New large TV.
Cons: Clean everything, remove the stains from the linens, and fix what needs to be fixed
Location: Not really much of interest around. There are a number of supermarkets and places to eat but not many attractions.
I was a little hesitant to visit this motel but I needed to stay somewhere cheap. I requested a non-smoking room and the room reeked of smoke. The bed had a top and bottom sheet and the bed spread - no blanket at all. There was black hairs on the stained pillow cases and the stained towels. I believe they were clean but just stained. There was something melted (or that melted) on the vanity. The grout in the bathroom was stained brown and the cleanliness of toilet itself was questionable. The wallpaper was peeling and all of the furniture and fixtures were worn. On the positive side the air conditioner worked very well and I actually needed to turn it warmer after about 15 minutes after being off all day. The TV was large and new and there was a coffee maker with free coffee. The room was quite large and there was plenty of room with only one king sized bed.

Not worth the low cost

Location: I would travel more miles and pay a higher rate than stay here again.
The room was run down, the furniture badly worn. the air conditioner was a joke and the clerk couldn't understand anything I said.

The only good thing I can say about this motel is the location. Everything else about this motel was lacking in my opinion. It was really tough to control the room temp, either too warm or way too cold. Hot water in the shower was a crap shoot, sometimes there was plenty, sometimes it was cold as ice. For the lack of services available at this motel, I would expect to pay 20 to 30% less money that the rate I was charged. You can do much better for the money.
