before making reservations. Booked this motel prior to a motorcycle trip. This motel would be where I would stay at the end of my third leg of the trip. Liked that it was near Route 66 (nice ride!).
Pulled into the parking lot around 8:00pm and already was thinking that I had made a mistake. People drinking and hanging out around the perimeter of the building and courtyard. Checked in and paid cash for the room because I was hesitant to use my credit card.
Upon finding my room and parking my bike I was greeted by the annoying barking of a dog two rooms from mine. To make a longer story short, I eventually did confront the woman owner of the dog in regards to the barking. She was quite offended and belligerent that I dare complain about her dog. This was in the parking lot while I was unloading my bike and she was out with her dog. Her defense was that "if he hears a noise he's gonna bark. That's what he do." Upon returning to her room, the husband comes out and gets involved. Just what I need, I'm thinking. Fortunately, after a brief exchange we parted ways and nothing further happened and I ended up staying the night. In fact, I only heard one more brief bit of dog noise after that.
Must also mention that I went down to the office to buy a bottled water and a snack from the vending machines. While there, a gentleman was checking out of his room and asking for a refund. Complained that there were five guys drinking outside of his room. I waited outside for him and when he came out I mentioned my experience and what I thought of the surroundings. He said he wasn't going to tolerate that sort of thing and that he was going to find somewhere else to stay. Also said that he thought there were "hookers" on the premises. Might be true, as I had noticed that in the snack machine there were two selections for condoms.
Judging by the work vehicles in the parking lot and the clientele, this must be a place where contract workers stay.
I left early the next morn. I wasn't going to stick around for the continental breakfast (if there was one). I could only imagine what that might be like! Went to a nearby McDonald's for breakfast.
I've read reviews on TripAdvisor before but not on this particular motel. If I had, it would have influenced my decision and I would have avoided this error in judgement. Also, I've never written a review on TripAdvisor but I felt that this was necessary so other people wouldn't make the same mistake.
Oh yeah, in all fairness I will say that the room was satisfactory.
I realize this review is quite lengthy but it's something I had to do (and I didn't even mention the woman and her drunk, mumbling husband).
