Everything was great until my third night, when I discovered how thin and poorly soundproofed the rooms are. If you are staying upstairs, be considerate of those beneath you, because they can hear your every footstep and much of your conversation. The nights when I had no/quiet guests above, this was an excellent motel and I had a great stay.
