I stayed at this motel 4 years ago, but this site wasn't around at the time so here is an update of my truly horrific adventure. I stayed there 4 nights. The second night I saw a bat fly out of the air conditioning vent. I was very panicked because I don't want to get bit and have to get rabies shots. I freaked out and ran in the bathroom having to leap over the bat crawling on the floor. I tried to decide what to do. I was looking for something to kill it and then I thought I can't kill a bat. So I opened the door and walked very carefully and opened the motel door and waited on the balcony for the bat to fly out and sure enough it did. Motel 6 in Davis should inspect for bats because they are going to have a lawsuit on their hands if someone else DOES get bit in the future. I'm not a sue happy person, but I know mostly everyone else is. We called the person at the front desk and told them there was a bat in our room I was told, "Yeah we get bats in here sometimes."
Here are the other problems with the motel at the time in Oct. 2003:
Location: They placed us in one of the only rooms left that faced the freeway. Very loud to hear cars whizzing by.
Scratched car: Someone scratched our rental car in the parking lot. We know it was in the parking lot because we didn't see the huge scratch on the door 9 hrs ago when we parked it the night before.
Bed problems: Stained sheets and pillowcases. Springs sticking out of mattress. Pubic hair on mattress.
Rude staff: When we checked in we were met by a very rude young woman. She informed us that there was one room left and then she said "Will that be a problem" like she wanted us to leave her alone and let her go back to her magazine reading. We should have took her warning.
Ice machine: It wasn't functioning properly. Gave half melted ice cubes and took a long time to fill up the bucket.
Puddles: Puddles were around the building like they hosed down the place to clean it and I almost slipped, but I grabbed onto a railing.
Trash cans: When our trash can was filled up in our room I went outside to look for one. The one nearest to our room was overflowing, the next one.....you guessed it....overflowing.....so I just found another trashcan that wasn't seriously overflowing and put our trash on top of the trashcan.
Maid service: The first day the maid cleaned my room, the second day she came too early so I told her to come back when I was gone in the afternoon. No one ever came back and for my last 2 nights there I had no maid service.
