3/5 Okay

Disliked: Cleanliness
Overall the motel is not bad for the price. The bed was comfortable, my room was quiet and the staff was pleasant. Things I didn’t like: I never felt like the room was really clean. There were several white threads on the dark carpet in different locations. The AC/heating unit was ancient. I tried to adjust it upon my arrival. I couldn’t and I froze that first night. The next morning I fiddled with it and got it to a comfy temp. There is no cleaning service if you stay multiple days. I used a fresh wash cloth each day. What do you do with the used ones that never dry? Felt odd to come back to my room and an unmade bed.
