I stay in 5 star hotels and I stay in cheap motels as well. And I understand what I expect from where I go.
I was on a road trip on highway 1, and was too tired, so decided to pull over and spend the night somewhere. In such cases I just check in a basic motel.
My expectations from such a motel are very basic. A clean bed, a clean and quiet room, for a cheap price. That's all I need.
Well, this place is cheap, but not clean! First of all, the room and the bed smelled! And it wasn't cleaning or sanitizing products that you can smell from many motels (I know that smell and I am OK with that).
Secondly, and more importantly, when I was leaving, I discovered a few small bugs in the bed! And I had a few itchy spots on my body! That was the moment that I literally escaped from there! And when I arrived home, I washed and machine dried my entire clothes and luggage to insure that I am not bringing unwanted guests.
This is a very old building. And everything inside room is old as well. The room key is a punched card! The last time I saw one was back in..... Id don't remember. The TV was extremely old as well. But again, I couldn't care less about those items.
My main problem was that the room wasn't clean and it did smell!
Don't stay here! Spend a little bit more and go to a better place! There is a reason that this place is so cheap!
Well, it was cheap. And it with free internet and free parking.
