We had to stay overnight for a family event. The desk clerk was hardly friendly, nor speak clearly. I had to ask him to repeat himself numerous times because he mumbles. I didn't expect four star service, but being the only hotel in town, I guess quality and customer service doesn't rank high on their list. The sign on the counter "No Refunds after 30 min." should have been a clear indicator this was probably just a "no-tell motel."
The room itself was just a place to sleep and shower. It had a funny smell and was hardly sanitary. I was afraid to even think about how clean the beds were. It was either this or sleep in my car. Sigh. I didn't feel very safe here. I slept with my .9mm Glock on the nightstand. The vent/fan in the bathroom was torn out, leaving a gaping hole in the ceiling. We were only given two towels each (my mom and I). With two women, the more towels the better. The floor was scary. I didn't even want to walk barefoot. The telephone still had a Days Inn decal on it and looked like it hadn't been clean since 1990.
The breakfast included dry cereal and two pots of coffee. We ended up driving down to McDonald's and getting breakfast.
Check-out was a breeze. Mom just handed the clerk our room cards and he didn't say "Thank you" or whatever. Nice.
Next time, I might check out the local B&Bs..
