I had a rush of nostalgia when we first pulled up to the Manor Motel -- a 50's style motor inn, with a friendly representative at the front desk. Just the kind of place my parents would have taken me to when I was growing up.
But once we entered the room, the nostalgia died quickly. The carpet was filthy. There was a trash can full of someone else's garbage. The cups were unwashed. The wall paper and tile were peeling off the walls. And the shower -- let's just say I felt dirtier when I came out than when I first went in, with mold and mildew all over the floor and a shower that couldn't run hot and cold water together.
Mom wouldn't have put up with any of this. Maybe you shouldn't either.
Still, it's probably the cheapest place in Ashland within walking distance of the theater. And with a little more attention, I'm convinced it could really be a gem. But it's not there now...
