My family & I stayed for one night, last minute, & to be honest we were all a little nervous staying in a motel right on the highway... we were pleasantly surprised!!
We took up 4 rooms, everyone agreed that they were very clean, although noticeably old, they were maintained. The outside of the site has obviously had a small facelift, lick of paint & some landscaping, so it looks fresher. The bathroom is very small, but really no different to a hotel in a city that’s you’d pay $200+ a night.
I’d give the shower a 4 out of 10 - not good coverage, wouldn’t try washing long hair under it.
If you’re a light sleeper, you will most definitely wake during the night, the trucks sound as though they’re coming straight through the room! The pillows aren’t great either, so if it’s an option, bring your own.
The great thing is this place also serve meals - we didn’t have one, but that’s extremely convenient!
This is also located just near a road house, so any snacks are just a skip away.
