We checked in and saw the place up close and it kinda made us shiver a little bit. It was really that bad. Upon opening the door to our cave, we were immediately slammed by a foul stench of stale cigarettes and possibly some errant feces. It was a little bit more than an acquired taste. I laid down on the "bed" to take a nap. All of a sudden, my girlfriend woke me up to notify me that there was semen on the ground in the bathroom. I then noticed that right above the broken mirror in front of the sink was a ventilation fan that looked like it had possibly swallowed an entire cat. There was hair and fur all over it and it may have been punched or broken at some point. She continued to take a shower in the yellow and nasty stall with black spots all over the floor that resembled bugs. The water changes from hot to cold for seemingly no reason. It's okay because the flow is impeded by 50 years worth of hard water buildup, which was just so appetizing. After you dry yourself off with the chintzy dollar store towels, you'll feel like you have just received a bad case of athlete's foot off the unwashed and gross bathroom floor. It's hard to maneuver yourself out of the bathroom because it's the size of a small closet. Try not to turn the lights on in the motel room for 2 reasons. The first would be because you might see all the rust on the lights by the side of the bed, or the ceiling lamp itself may just make you vomit. The other reason would be so that no one knows you're there and tries to break in. We decided to leave for dinner and on our way out, 2 friendly locals smoking cigarettes outside and drinking hard liquor straight out of the bottle gave us a great "Sandusky, Ohio Welcome" by proceeding to stare at us as we walked to our car. When we returned, we were about to go in and take photos of the dump to put up on review sites. Now the nice locals were gone but their friend was punching the door of their room and on the phone demanding his money. We started packing and when we got back outside, there he was again, this time inside the room tearing it apart looking for the money and screaming at his cell phone. We were too afraid to stick around to take photos so we proceeded to drive 4 hours to Pittsburgh to get home because it was really that bad. Don't stay here under any circumstances, you will undoubtedly regret your decision. And the best part is what happened afterwards. We had only been in the room for about 1 hour all told. We asked for a refund and the motel denied it. I'm sure we got our $33 out of it from taking 2 whole showers.
Do not stay here unless you want to be afraid for your life.
