It certainly is an old motel, modeled on the old style of the typical traveller of 30-40 years ago. There has been some upgrading, but, it left a lot to be desired. It was clean & comfortable...but certainly skimpy in some areas. They could certainly use more lighting inside. We would not choose to go back for the price we paid. Handwritten instructions on how to operate the television was certainly rather primitive. Toiletry materials were very minimal.
