      Good Room for the Price; Hard-Working Owners

      This is one of those typical, family-run, old motels, a bit off the interstate highway. The room was very dated, with old and inexpensive materials. However, this family is doing an excellent job: everything in the room was in good repair. There was no loose carpeting or wall coverings. The plumbing fixtures all work exactly right, and are installed firm and tight. Nothing in the room was broken, or haphazard. And, importantly, the room was very clean. The heating unit worked very well. There was plenty of hot water and good water pressure. But, the room is very old-looking, and nothing fancy. The shower was very small, and the shower head could not be moved to spray water in the best direction in the shower. But, that was also reflected in the price: it was cheap.
