The hotel itself is not all that great but it served our needs for the night, which included a clean bed and room, a shower and a toilet. The bed was rather lumpy and smaller than what we were used to but we were so tired after an 11-hour drive that we simply did not care. The carpets were somewhat worn but clean; the bathroom was small, clean and contained a small coffee pot with complimentary inexpensive coffee. Our room windows did not offer much of a view as when the curtains were pulled back we were privy to a view of a large muddy hill surrounding us. The price was not bad here as we paid $70 Canadian. I would not have paid much more though no matter how tired I was as even though the room was clean it was certainly not the most comfortable I have ever been in.
The phone was bolted down to the bedside table and the remote control to the television was given to us by the front desk staff which disturbed us a bit when we thought what type of clientele must frequent this motel, but it didn’t matter at this point. We were tired and needed some food, sleep and a shower in that order. Whether we were so tired that we heard very little noise or maybe just the insulation was of good quality I do not know but we heard literally nothing of our neighbors in the rooms around us.
We discovered the next morning upon awakening that a complimentary breakfast of English muffins and coffee were served in the lobby but we were in too much a hurry to do more than nod in the direction of the food and then head out the door to our Jeep. The staff here both at checking in and out was friendly, professional, and helpful. All in all, if you need just as we what we were, a clean bed, shower, and toilet and a good price, then this is a good place to stop. Otherwise don’t waste your money, as you should find better somewhere else.
