We missed our turn on Highway 54 at Mullinville, Kansas. So we decided to continue on to Dodge City because; 1. according the map it was the biggest town within an hour drive, and 2. Dodge City is a town out of TV westerns. When we found the Days Inn (looked the best of a few choices in the motel strip) the first thing we saw was the sticker on the front door that said, "get out of Dodge" with a picture of a cowboy. Ominous sign no less. Inside the lobby were two people who looked like they hadn't slept in a few days. One behind the counter and the other stretched across a sofa. They were pleasant enough to us and we got our room promptly. The place indeed was pretty run down and appeared not to have had any maintenance done in several years. Our room was pretty big on the 2nd floor but had peeling paint and the furnishings were badly worn. The ceiling looked like there was a roof leak with stains. It was a cold night so we had to use the heater which turned on and off every five minutes no matter what we set it at. It was so noisy that I couldn't get a restful sleep. If we turned it off completely it got cold very quickly in the room. The parking lot was ice covered. The included breakfast was what I would call crappy. The only saving grace for our brief visit to Dodge City was the wonderful dinner we had at the Thai restaurant (reviewed separately on TA) a short walk away.
