I normally find the TA's reviews right on target, but not this time. We stayed in the motel, and it is horribly neglected. Mattresses are very old and lumpy, several bulbs were burned out, and one of the others was a bare bulb with the shade missing. The heater was missing the knob to operate it, the toilet seat was not properly attached due to a broken bolt, the "furniture" consisted of a cheap plastic outdoor chair, there was mold throughout the bathroom, no headboards or footboards on the beds, the wall behind where the headboard would normally be was so sticky it was obviously the buildup of years of oily heads, the blankets were undersized, the bed sheets were so inadequate that you would find the bed in shambles every morning. The security chain was broken, the soap holder was missing, the toilet ran at random times, and we were awakened by maids who asked if we wanted service. When we said yes on the second day, they seemed disturbed, ......get the picture. Now for the good: Mike the manager is terrific, and we did get a newspaper delivered each morning. I should have heeded the warnings of our friends who live in Borrego. Lesson learned.
