Stayed one night May 2012. The staff is very friendly. The phone system is very poor. Antiseptic smell upon entering room. They use some kind of spray. I am a non-smoker and the room did not smell of smoke. Good point. However, the mattress was too soft and very little support. (Old?)(Inexpensive mattress?) I was in a non-smoking room very near the office. I was almost asleep even after hearing voices from adjacent rooms (walls not well soundproofed) but then at 11:43 pm the room next to me but one room further from the office became occupied. People started showering. The loudness of the water rushing through the pipes woke me up and with the poor mattress I was not able to get back to sleep for several hours. I think "budget" comes in with poor soundproofing of walls, piping, architectural design to preclude such noise problems. I got only about 4 hours of very disrupted sleep. The shower looked clean but after emerging I saw something along the bottom part of the edge where the "granite ?" wall meets the tub. It looked like mold. Then there was a ant in the tub. The towels were thick but very rough. The TV stations were mostly fuzzy with no guide as to which stations were available or what. Room was spacious enough. Nice, clean little fridge. Did not use the microwave or coffee maker with coffee grounds in nice little sealed packaging. Ice available in washroom when open. No attendant at desk area at 7 am in the morning. Liked being able to park my car just outside the door. Well lit throughout the night. Near to wear family gathering was so that was good. The noise and poor mattress preclude me from wanting to stay here another night. I paid just under $80. with the tax. Thought it "tacky" for housekeeping to leave a tip envelope on room desk. (I did however leave a tip because I know the staff in any of these places does work hard and these people were friendly. Running a motel requires a lot of hard work.) For me, I think it may be worth it to pay the higher rates of motels with better mattresses and better sound proofing against talking of other guests, car arrivals, showers running, etc. It is a tough call to rate this motel.
