    This is the least expensive decent motel in the area. That alone will appeal to many. Not so highly visible, so look closely to find it.

    David S
    Has anyone stayed at this hotel since AFTER it became Derby Inn & Suites? I see multiple very negative reviews (complaining about bugs & overall condition), but I also see a couple of very positive reviews. Usually there's a common theme in reviews on Trip Advisor, but these practically seem like different places altogether. I get the message loud and clear that when it was a Howard Johnsons, it was dated and in declining condition. But I also wonder how much of that changed with the new ownership. Did they update the decor, carpets, and furnishings and address these problems? Or just hang a new sign out? I know marketing pics can be deceptive, but the ones I see on the site now don't seem to match up to most of the older (2016 & prior) reviews at all.
