Went to the motel for a family reunion. Everything was great Friday and Friday night. Myself and my family stayed up late Friday night. Quietly sitting around talking and having a few drinks. We were across the parking lot from the rooms as to not disturb other guests. The lady who owns and runs the motel interacted with us and joked with us. She asked us to keep two out if four picnic tables open for the other guests which we did. She asked us to clean up after ourselves which we did. We used our own bbq to keep the bbqs provided open for other guests. Then on Saturday some guests who were not staying at the motel came for the day. At some point one of those guests used to pool which is not allowed. While I respect her rule that the pool is for guests only, the manner in which she asserted herself was incredibly rude and uncalled for. Her rudeness caused a couple people at the reunion to confront her on how she had acted. Initially I defended her although I did not defend how she behaved. Our day carried on with no further incident. She asked for the guests not staying at the motel to be gone by 10:00pm to which we complied. Saturday night as a group of about 12 people were sitting around doing exactly what they had done without incident the previous night things got ugly. Shortly before 11:00 pm the woman's husband came out and yelled at the group to keep quiet. Within seconds of saying this he came back and told everyone to go to their rooms or he was going to come back with a bat. My brother stood and said ok to which the owners husband replied he was going to smash in my brothers head with said bat. Everyone was disguised with their behavior and threats of violence. They voiced their disgust but headed to their rooms. I had been in my room during the confrontation so when my husband returned to our room and informed me we had to go to bed I stepped outside to have my before bed cigarette as I do every night. When I stepped outside the owner yelled at me to get in my room. I politely showed her my cigarette and told her I was just having a smoke. In the seats provided just outside my door I might add. To which she yelled at me to get the hell back in my room or she was going to call the cops and have me evicted from the motel. I should add that there were several other guests of the motel sitting outside smoking at the time. She also yelled something about 9-11 but I have no idea what she was talking about. It was obvious to us all as she and her husband slurred their words that they were intoxicated in some way. So here is a group of 35-70 year olds confined to our rooms at 11:00pm on a Saturday night for doing absolutely nothing wrong at a motel we paid for. Oh ya, the next day the cops had to be called when her husband tried to start a fight with my 70 year old uncle And when two members of my family stepped in to stop him he got a very large wrench and chased after all three men swinging it and trying to hit them. He knocked my two 70 year old uncles to the ground and was eventually taken down by my cousin who had been in the army, until the cops arrived. So if you want to have your life threatened with a bat and or a wrench by a deranged owner I recommend you stay here!!!
