This is a basic motel with a friendly staff. But there were wires sticking out of the wall a year ago and they are still there. Found old blood stains on a face cloth. There was grit between the sheets. An outer window was broken and the shards not moved. They are (very slowly) renovating so it's a bit of a construction scene. It's a place to shelter, but it will not be my first choice to stay in future.

It was clean and had necessary items and yet the room I got didn't have fabric matt by the bed to take my shoes off and step on it before getting in or after getting out of the bed, a smoke detector was poping out of the ceiling.The staff was helpful when needed but property needs snow removal.
