After an extremely long and arduous drive across the UK, France, and then Belgium this week, we were unfortunate enough to drop into this hotel at 11-35pm on the 22nd Oct 2008. We had already stayed at 3 road-side motels in the UK, & not paid anywhere near the 95 Euros we were charged to stay at this place. All had tea/coffee facilities in the room, were clean, spacious, offered wi-fi connection, and were generally good value for money.
The supposedly non-smoking room at Rasthof und Motel Fernthal was dirty (I left a tissue with the dust accumulations wiped from the extremely small 'double' bed), grubby carpet, delapidated shower equipment (no shower curtain or door), but worst of all, was the stink of smoke in all areas. I spotted a used condom on the concrete steps leading up to the Reception area, and which had clearly been there for some time.
Exhaustion and the late hour forced us to accept conditions; a mistake, in that neither of us were able to sleep. I complained to the Receptionist at the time of departure, and while she nodded acceptance, there was no sign or mention of an apology!
Our joint opinion of Rasthof und Motel Fernthal? Even if you've driven for hours and are totally shattered, drive on - it's just not worth stopping.
