when I go to visit family in Monroe - $50+tax with free internet. Tried the one in the center of town: Country Hearth - but too cramped, grim and airless in their only available $60+tax nonsmoking room (handicapped with no proper place to hang clothes and a walk-in shower placed at nipple height). Guess I prefer the older-style motels with doors that open to the outside - since fresh air is kind of a priority for me.
Next day, we looked at the Monroe Motor Inn ($39ish for a double and quite old/basic) and the Walton Inn - my 2nd choice, off by itself and well-equipped enough - $45 flat rate for cash. We didn't try to bargain for a better rate.
Deer Acres was in a peaceful location, tucked well away from the road facing horse pastures, and appeared to be the best-equipped, best-run ship of all. A friendly greeting from an older East Indian woman, and a younger one at the desk inside, with clean/tidy rooms. My sister told me not to come here, since she'd seen it years ago and thought it was an unsafe dump - but maybe it's under new management, since the only criticism she had this time when she came into our room was that the painting over the bed wasn't to her taste (I mean, are they ever?? Lol.) The only minus that I noticed were a couple of burn marks in the shape of an iron on the carpet - otherwise in good shape.
Though it was late December and cold outside, we needed no heat - just fell asleep to the sound of the rain, and slept like babies. It was a Saturday night, so we expected to hear something from the nearby bar (in a separate building further back from the road), but I heard nothing except - only briefly - faint music, and (once) a loudish car going by.
Anyway - after seeing everything in Monroe except the B&B - Deer Acres will be my first choice the next time we visit. Never bother writing reviews in general (thus this is my first one), but wanted to give them a good write-up since the others here sound somewhat trollish.
