nice, quiet motel with a railroad theme.
Posted Nov 27, 2016
I have stayed here several times in the past when visiting a friend at the local nursing home. The staff have always been helpful and accommodating of any requests. The rooms are clean, spacious enough for my needs and have wifi access which is plentiful for my uses.
I only have two dings against them; room lighting and available outlets. The rooms tend to be on the dark side. The bedside light is very low, there is no central room light and turning the lights on is a multi-step affair; turn on vanity light, turn on bedside light, walk to desk and turn on that light. There is enough light to maneuver around the room but not nearly as much as i'm used to in other motels.
The second ding is for a lack of usable outlets. no convenient outlet near the bedside table. Only one available plug in near the desk. and one shared with the torche lamp by the recliner. I like to use my cell phone as an alarm when I travel but the charging stand has to sit on the desk which is inconvenient to the bedside. The laptop had to be charged near the recliner. I have a tablet that has to be charged at the desk. At least I have a multi-charge power port for the phone and tablet. Both of those devices can charge at the same time.
These two dings detract from the comfort of the room. I hope they start using LED lights in the room fixtures to help resolve the lighting issue. An extension cord made available to the bedside table would be a great help as well.
