We have stayed there twice, once in 2004 and once around Halloween of 2006. Yes, the managers family does live there, that is quite odd and maybe a bit uncouth! Where is that "Mystery Shopper" when you need them?
Management / Staff: Just plain odd goings on, in this department! Both times, several of us were going to visit some friends who lived about 20 miles further down I-64. In 2004 we were waiting in the lobby for the others in our party, chit-chatting and what not when the staff asked us to hold it down! You have to be kidding, right? They have their nerve, huh? We weren't that loud. :) Just as another reviewer said, the staff lives there. In 2006, we did the same thing but no one said for us to hush. The odd thing here is that one of the staff's kids, takes their (live-in) dog from their room, behind the counter and out of the front door for him to do his business . . . right in front of God and everybody! It gets better, then the dog (and boy) come back in. The dog goes behind the desk, stands up by putting his paws up on the counter, like he was waiting on the next customer. Comical as all get out but also unprofessional. Other than that, the staff were helpful, esp. in 2006.
Location: Convenient to I-64, WalMart, restaurants and so on. It is hard to see, turn into the Wal Mart parking lot (at the stop light) and it is behind and to the North side of the strip mall. Parking can be tight.
Rooms: Very clean, comfortable and well appointed for standard rooms. We paid about $55 per night for a King room. Not bad.
Otherness: The lobby and hallways both times had nasty odors. They must use a 100% bleach solution to clean the lobby with. It made your eyes water and head ache. We aksed to prop the main doors open to let fresh air, in. The motel's laundry was right behind the desk. Constant, hot, dryer lint smells went everywhere.
It was just an okay place. It would have gotten a 4 or 5 had it not been for the live in staff and the awful smells that were everywhere (less so in the rooms).
Overall: Typical mid priced stuff, just odd seeing Innkeepers at a mainstream place!
