I was visiting Mendocino and tried to make the 4.5 hour drive back home, but was dozing off on the road so I decided to just stop off at the first motel I came by.
What a mistake.
Although the front desk person was nice and informative, the room was ridiculously bad. I would have thought the room was bad if it was $40 (it was twice as much).
The bathtub needed to be re-caulked. The carpet was old and dingy. The manager told me that the wi-fi wouldn't work and he gave me a ethernet cable to use, but there was no where to plug it in (I spent at least 10 minutes looking).
The ceiling looked like it was missing a layer.
Around 2 am the people above me arrived and I swear on my life it creaked so badly I was worried that they were going to fall through into my room. I could hear every word they were saying. About 15 minutes later I could hear every moan as well.
To be fair, the room was fairly clean, there were no insects (that I saw) and there was hot water. I have a feeling the manager was as nice as he was to offset the horrible room.
The worse motel experience I've had in my life (25+ different experiences).
I rarely take the time to write reviews, but I just couldn't let this one slide.
