Went with my sister and her husband to dig crystals at Mt. Ida. 1st thing that struck me odd was that the owner immediately charged our cards for our full 4 day reservation the moment we arrived, saying that it took 4 days for the charge to clear. (I never heard of that before, I think she just wanted to nail down the payment before we had a chance to change our minds and leave if we didn't like the rooms.)
The owner said she was trying to sell the motel. I guess she isn't that interested in keeping it up anymore as my room was stinking of a urine like smell near the bathroom. I think they probably had a toilet overflow problem in the room and never got around to cleaning or replacing the carpeting. Yuck!
It wasn't completely horrible, but wasn't clean smelling, and I did make a point not to walk on the floor in the room in bare feet. Other than that, I guess it was ok. Having said that, I do think if I had it to do over again, I'd check the room before letting her register me and would have asked for one that didn't smell.
