Where do I begin...
We found our room at #16 and the first thing we saw was that the windows looks like someones tried to break in with all the cuts in the wood. Definitely don't feel safe.
They've even placed a door knob on the door that doesn't even do anything because the key will unlock and open the door for you. Real classy..
The sheets on the bed is what caught our eyes when we walked in but I understand now that they suit this entire hotel: absolutely disgusting.
The TV is what you turn on almost every time you first step foot into a motel but we couldn't do that because there were no batteries. So okay, it wasn't hard to ask reception and get the batteries but once we did that we learn that there's no channel tuned. Woohoo. No time for that, we have our event to get ready for.
We travelled 3 hours that day from the Country so we were very hungry and walked a short distance to Safeway. Don't worry about finding anything to cook, microwave or toast because you wont be able to here!
Maybe the worst thing of all... we wake up this morning to find that the SMOKE DETECTOR DOESNT HAVE BATTERIES.
Enough said I think. I'm even writing this review before leaving the motel.
Will NOT be returning or recommending
