If you enjoy the smell of a public restroom urinal after a long baseball game on a hot August day, then you will love the GOLDEN OAK INN located in Lewiston, Idaho.
Lewiston is a lovely town. Unfortunately when you first approach it from the south you will probably be greeted by a disgusting odor that will make you want to gag and cover your noise. At first you wonder if the dog made a mess or Uncle Larry ate too many burritos. But we don’t have a dog or an Uncle Larry, so it must have been the local paper mill. Downtown Lewiston doesn’t smell too strongly, but then of course, the Golden Oak Inn is located on the outskirts of Lewiston right across the street from the paper mill. Not only does this provide you with a lovely view of smoke stacks industrial buildings, but the smell permeates everything.
Of course the Golden Oak Inn is a 1 star kind of place to begin with. It’s just a bunch of run down buildings, dirty carpet and old furniture. I’m not one to spend the big bucks on a place to sleep, but this motel is the bottom of the barrel as far as acceptable accommodations go.
And of course do NOT expect any kind of service at the Golden Oak Inn. The only thing that this management cares about is the money. I think their motto is just pay the bill and shut up.
To summarize, if the Golden Oak Inn was PAYING ME $100 to stay a night in their hotel, I would decline and spend the night in my car. It’s cleaner in the car and smells a whole lot better, even with Uncle Larry in the back seat!
