This Best Western is either a relatively new or recently renovated facility. The rooms are spacious. We had a King sized bed, table with 2 chairs, two nightstands and an end table along with a combination 2 drawer dresser/fridge/microwave cosole with a TV on top. My husband thought the TV was small,though I didn't. We'd been traveling for 2 weeks and had many wall mounted large TV's in much smaller rooms, so I think that may have had something to do with my husband's perception that the TV was too small. But to be fair, I'm not much of a TV person, so I'm no fan of huge screen TV's. Amenities also include iron, ironing board, hairdryer, 4 sets of towels (for a reservation for 2 people), in room coffee maker, 2 bottles of water, soap and shampoo. Rooms open to the parking lot. We were on the first floor at the end of a long road trip so this was very convenient as we were able to park in front of our door. Later n the evening, the parking lot filled up, due to high occupancy and/or because of the attached 24 hour Denny's and small, bare bones lobby bar. The location was just off of exit 33 on I-95, very easy to get to. Despite the popular (on a Saturday night) Denny's and bar, it was quiet and restful. The king sized mattress was on the firm side and very comfortable. Of the 7 motels we were in on a 2 week trip, the mattress was tied for the best with the Hampton Inn in Rocky Mount, NC. We had minimal need for interaction with the front desk, but the desk clerk was pleasant and courteous. There is no free breakfast at the motel, but a $6 per person voucher for the Waffle House across the street, the Mc Donald's a short way up the street or a "grab and go" bag at the front desk which I was told included an apple or banana, energy bar and bottle of water was included in the price of the room. The beds were made with the usual set of sheets, a blanket and top sheet, which I prefer to the rarely washed bedspreads in many other motels. The only problem, which is a big one for me was the cleanliness of the bathroom and the sink/counter area which is in the main room. The grout had mildew and it was clear that the area behind the sink faucet was not cleaned frequently, as it had mildew also. The sink area could be remedied by a thorough cleaning followed by the use of soap dishes so water did not accumulate behind the faucet. The grout/shower walls just need to be cleaned regularly with an appropriate cleaner. When he bathrooms are not well cleaned, I can only make a conjecture about the rest of the room. The linens were clean, but the nightstands and table really needed to be wiped down well. I travel with Lysol wipes, so I used them liberally. If cleanliness isn't a major issue for you, but you want a very comfortable bed in a spacious room with plenty of outlets for electronics in a great location for travelling along I-95, good amenities and a break on the price of breakfast, then this is easily a 5/5 motel for you. less

Thank you for staying with us recently and for sharing your experience. I am pleased to read you enjoyed much of your stay, especially the convenience towards the I-95 and Denny's Restaurant. Although you liked your room, I apologize for the cleanliness issues you encountered with the bathroom and for the inconvenience this caused. I have addressed your concerns with the housekeeping staff. That you for bringing this to my attention. We hope you and your husband will stay with us again when you are in this area.
