I arrived at 9:55pm. There was a large tractor trailer idling directly in front. I could see the front desk but the front door of the place was locked. There was a sign that said "Helping another guest, will return soon"
After waiting 30 minutes I called the 800# I found online. It was Days Inn reservations but the lady somehow contacted someone local and said the clerk would be there shortly. A minute later a girl comes around the corner from outside to open the door to check me in. She was courteous enough but not apologetic. She was the only employee on the property and was out "making her rounds" I felt bad that she was stuck doing every single thing on the property but also annoyed that I had to stand there and wait. I couldn't even use the bathroom or sit down anywhere..and it was getting chilly.
I was directed to park in the back parking lot as it would be closer to my room that was in the center area that faced the small pool that was very well lit. The back parking lot was sorta dimly lit and felt shady so I didn't park there. I parked at the front corner at the breakfast area where it had better lighting. This meant I had to walk a little further but it just felt better to have my vehicle there.
The room was decent, nice king bed, large LG flat screen. The lighting was a mix of harsh-colored LED lights and flourescent. I had trouble getting the air to turn off because something was wonky with the knob so I just unplugged it. The alarm clock was making these odd, small static sounds. I discovered that it was on but turned down low. I turned it off and it continued to occasionally make these sounds. I searched all over the television remote for a sleep function. There didn't appear to be one. There was an aging microwave and mini fridge in the room that I didn't make use of. WiFi was iffy. It would work OK sometimes and then not so well others. You could really tell you were sharing it. Videos would pause repeatedly to where it became bothersome to watch them.
The walls are thin. It was fairly quiet when I arrived but I soon noticed I could hear the person behind me brushing their teeth at the sink. The king bed was large and comfy but I awoke to the early morning sounds of my neighbors' stirrings. I could easily hear the person above me walking back and forth across the floor and people walking past my door. When I stepped out the door in the morning I encountered a woman walking out of her room with two medium-sized dogs who did their business on the lawn.
Breakfast was adequate: make-yourself waffles, yogurt, coffee, cereal, oatmeal, apples, oranges. There now appeared to be two employees present on the property.
I paid $64 for this room so for me it felt like "Sometimes you get what you pay for" This place isn't in a bad neighborhood and it wasn't dirty, it's just an aging property. They've made some small attempts at dressing it up a little, but not many. I felt like the owner(s) were really maximizing their profits, especially with the lack of service. Be forewarned: if you arrive after their shift change you too could very well be waiting to get in.
