Oh wow! You have to get me out of here. Let's forget the fact that I am in Dumas, TX. No, you know what, let's not. I am in Dumas, TX and there appears to be a few decent hotels in town, but this is not one of them. I am tentatively laying in the bed currently and not sure I can fall asleep. The sheet has stains (although I think it is clean???) and the toilet had a few stains on the underside of the lid that came off (if you know what I mean).
The tub is actually broken on the bottom. Not just cracked, but literally broken. It appears they have tried to cover it up with one of those matts. I don't know where the water is going. Now, I know sometimes some people need a place to go for cheap, but seriously, if you are strapped for cash, spend one night in your car and then use the money you saved there to add it to the next night and get something else. On top of that, for three nights I paid 85, which is not really that cheap.
If you are wondering why I am here it is because someone else got me the room (here on business) and it seriously is the only hotel room available (oil refinery here is getting back up and running).
My room smells like urine and looks like something from the 60's. We didn't go to places like this when we were growing up and we were poor! I am embarassed and I just hope I can sleep. Wish me luck!
If you want positives, here they are. The AC works real well. The room has a fridge and a microwave and the fridge is brand new. The walls were obviously recently painted and they have internet access (kind of, it comes in and out repeatedly). They also have a breakfast, but I haven't been to that yet (can't come soon enough though). Its' in town (is that a positive?).
