Is it possible to give a property (and its management) a FIVE and also a TWO? Motel was exactly as advertised -- clean, comfortable, in a busy, just-off-the-highway motel area. The people were extremely friendly and helpful -- especially Estella (housekeeping). Had a minor problem with the TV .. it was fixed immediately by maintenance. Front desk woman was great .. friendly and helpful. A FIVE. Stayed only one night on a road trip south and planned to stay there again on the return trip home. Got an email two nights before my return trip that they could not honor my reservation -- WHAT? Scrambled with Expedia and got another local motel. Then got charged because I did not show up. Bad form -- a TWO (tops). Called the hotel and the charge was reversed immediately (seems there was some miscommunication between the hotel and Expedia). Quick response --- a FIVE. So, as you can see, a mixed experience. But, the people were helpful and friendly enough to offset the minor inconvenience..
