6/10 Good

Just another aging motel.
Ugh, the building is getting old and the gardens? Just a bunch of different plants growing wild and rather unkempt every 10 feet or so. The main "garden" is out front by the office, and might have once held some pretty greenery and flowers, but it is obvious no one is keeping them up anymore. The carpeting inside is dirty & spotted with stains, the door to the fridge compartment was shredded at the bottom. The newer shower section is still nice, but starting to rust. The heat lamp in that section is nice. Comfortable bed.
