Room was clean but the room next door had the tv on and it was blasting all night like it was in my room. I couldn’t even watch my tv.

You definitely only get what you pay for.
I didn't expect a lot because the motel was so cheap so I wasn't too surprised or overly disappointed. Pros...the room was clean and the sheets fresh. Check in was quick and easy. Cons... Electrical outlets near beds were limited. The biggest disappointed was that we found no free breakfast when we were ready to leave in the morning (7:25am) and no sign posted saying the hours it would be available. I might stay there again since it was cheap and clean.
