I have been traveling the world for 20 years and have been to Africa, Asia, Europe, Canada, and across the USA. Over those 20 years on multiple continents, I have seen a lot of hotels/motels. This dump in Flagstaff is the worst place I have ever had to habitate or sleep in over night. Even worse than India or The Philippines or Africa. I did not feel secure while I slept because the windows have no lock on them. None at all. To physically confirm my fear, I went outside and slide my bedroom and bathroom window open by hand from the outside. Someone could have easily entered while I slept. So I had to remove the wood pole in the closet that the hangers hang on. I used that pole in the window frame at a horizontal angle so that I would prevent people from breaking in while I slept or at least the pole would fall onto the floor and make a noise if anyone tried anything.
When we arrived, the bed was literally broken, on a broken frame, with a broken box spring. I took it upon myself to remove the mattress and box spring from the frame. Then I put together the frame by hand on the filthy rug (on which I found garbage that had not been cleaned). Then I put together my own bed so I could sleep there and not hurt my back with the huge sink in the middle that I encountered upon arrival.
There were no towels provided. Zero. The lights were broken. 2 out of 4 were broken. They closed the front desk and office 3 minutes after I swiped my credit card and prepaid $65 for this dump. My neighbor above me walked around all night and watched loud movies with his front door open. I am pretty sure he was on meth.
I used the club on my car that night because of the seediness of the place. This motel is worse than the Third World. I reported them to the police department and the Flagstaff visitors center. Next is the Chamber of Commerce.
In the morning I saw a tough guy with several tattoos that claimed to be housekeeping. I showed him the issues but he did not care. He said he would "get right on that" but instead went back to smoking. I am pretty sure that he was on drugs too.
