    Clean and comfortable.

    The room was simple but clean and comfortable. The restaurant next door was a great plus. Good service, good food and we did not have to travel for dinner.

    Quite dirty for a 100 USD motel. Bad communication, as you need to be in the nearby restaurant for check-in before it closes at 8.30. We were planning on arriving later, tried calling and messaging them during the day, but they were not reachable. Luckily when we arrived at 9.15, the staff was still cleaning the kitchen of the restaurant, so we could still get our key. Don't be later though, or you might have to sleep in your car.

      The Baits Motel did not know what they were doing. They gave us room 5 which they said was ready and gave my cousin room 6 which they said would be read soon. The time was almost 3pm. Went to room 5 and the bed was not made and towels all over the bathroom floor. Went to room 6 and my key for room 5 unlocked it but tried to open the door someone said they were in the room. They said they had been there 2 days. Went back to the office and they said know one should be in that room, they were probably squatters. They didn't know why room 5 wasn't ready and could find out why those people were in room 6. We cancelled our three week reservation and left.

      Old place that lived up (or down) to name

      Check-in for motel was in next-door restaurant, so contact was limited to hours it was open (11 am-9 pm). Our unit was old, run-down: stained rugs, poor lighting including burned-out bulbs in lamps, no curtain on bathroom window, tilted floor, cupboard door which wouldn't shut and got in way of viewing tv, fridge didn't work, soap left in bathtub, not enough towels. Weren't sure bathtub clean, so wore flip-flops.
