Bad first impression
First time at this “motel”. This will be the last too. Worst check in experience ever! I booked using Front desk did not have my check in information because they are not “linked with” Front desk person was snobby, rude, not helpful, and took forever to check me in. My impression is, they don’t like their guests booking with I don’t know, but I received a very small, old and musty smelling room. Good thing is I just needed a quick one night to sleep before moving on. I will never stay at this “motel” again.
