We were in town a bit late, to settle up with our Income Tax preparer who lives right next door. We would not have come so far south if not for that proximity. It was May 2013.
This is a smaller district loaded with National Brand hospitality but we examined all of those and were not inspired - literally Quality Inn looked appealing (at night) so we gave it a try. We asked for a non-smoking room, the least of our demands and we secured one on the ground floor. As we entered, MLP (My Lovely Partner) sniffed and caught the unmistakable stench of tobacco. I went to the office, was turned back - Then I noticed the room next door was Placarded "No Smoking" but ours was not. The parking lot was nearly full; I was not in condition to argue and we stayed put.
I will end the agony and say that we realized with the dawn that this was a favorite of truckers and we went away from there. When checking out, I repeated my findings to the morning clerk and got no sympathy.
We ready to go by 6:30am, scrammed ASAP, the parking lot was already nearly empty.
