Would never stay again.
My husband found hairs on the sheets of both beds and had stained sheets and blankets. The inside of the bathtub was yellow and there was toothpaste left on the sink in the bathroom from a previous guest. My dog found old pizza crust under one of the beds. The only reason we stayed was because we were unable to find other accommodations in the area that would fit my family....

"Modern Motel is nowhere near Modern. The room is in pretty rough shape. Walls and door frames are pretty banged up. Planks falling off the bathroom wall.
