mom and pop motels-anywhere and everywhere

Jump to last reply

I'd like to see more word-of-mouth information and recommendations for mom and pop motels. I appreciate the nerve it takes to go into business for oneself (say I, the safely ensconced in a long-term government job person)and the investment of risk, time, money, blood, sweat and tears. I also appreciate the general idea of comfort a hotel chain gives with the better-the-devil-you-know expectations. I just thought I'd throw this out for consideration, see what people had to say.
I'm in the process of considering some motel options in Ashland as all of the hotels I have checked are full at least part of the time we will be there. There doesn't seem to be a lot of info out there for the small places. I'd prefer to give my money to the people in business for themselves rather than a hotel chain, but I'm not interested in landing in the local meth house either.
