Cons: Hair was all over the bottom sheet...the long strands of black hair stood out the most....so I could not sleep on the sheet. KAYAK indicated that the motel had wifi, but the motel attendant at the front desk said that there was none. The toilet had been used prior my entering the room, so it was not cleaned. The TV, which was not even a flat screen TV, was old. There was a fridge in the room, and I noticed some burn marks on top of the fridge...one burn mark in particular gave the impression that a hot glass pipe had been set on top of the fridge. There was one bar of soap that seemed old...the packaging of the soap seemed to be weak and deteriorating. No small bottle of shampoo was provided. The motel sits atop a very steep hill, so be careful when you park....make sure you have your emergency brake on. This place is best suited to be rented by the hour for extracurricular activities rather than legitimate travel.

Cons: The Grantmoore is a dirty, dangerous dump. As a middle aged tough male traveling alone I am used to rough conditions so I tend to ignore warnings, but this was too extreme for me. There was not even a nightstand for my gun so I slept with it loaded in the bed.
Locks do not work, doors look like they have been forced open and bent, smell of drugs and suspicious characters everywhere, everything in the room in severe disrepair. I wouldn't even recommend it for short stays with prostitutes- I have my pride and would be ashamed to bring a prostitute there.
Pros: Leaving, which I did after inspecting the room.
Cons: On my first attempt, was. Given a key to a room already occupied. Shortly thereafter, was solicited by a resident prostitute. I declined. The second key opened a room reminiscent of some third world country though, frankly, a small child leaning on the door would have opened it. There was a pro forma lock, but no real deadbolt, and the gap between the door and the doorjamb would have easily allowed anyone to defeat the lock. There was dim fluorescent lighting, but even this was sufficient to reveal soiled sheets, complete with cigarette burns. Unless you're down and out, or feeling that you need to be a little more depressed, save yourself the trip.
Cons: Bed bugs, local questionable characters living there. Mysterious wet carpet, ciagrette burns on the sheets. Nasty.
