I had to write about this place.If you have ever seen a US crime drama,they probably used this place as the set.I pulled off the highway during a road trip and found this place,I thought..Typical American small town hotel...why not ?
The proprietor was an elderly lady who seemed genuinely surprised to see a guest and went through the entire check in process and 5 minute conversation without once taking the cigarette out of her mouth,the ash dropping on the small,elderly dog under her arm.
When I finally managed to open the door to my room (damaged lock) with my first step my foot stuck to the carpet so badly it actually lifted off the grippers.The bedding was a pale yellow colour but I think it was originally white,both light fittings were hanging from the wall by their wires,the only thing missing was the chalk outline of the previous occupant.The shower tray contained so much hair it looked like someone had shaved an ape in there.I used the toilet and left (I didn`t flush but neither had the last guy).I didn`t even ask for my $40 back.
This is a small backwater motel,well off the tourist trail and this was the only place I could find (there`s a good Hol.Inn about 20 miles East).If you ever go there...keep driving or you may find yourself on the TV news with the Police describing you as `The latest victim`....you have been warned !
