My husband & I did a BAAaaaaadd thing!
We decided to drive from the Colorado Front Range to LA to see our grandkids.......let's just say it was a LLOONNGG Drive!
So long that on the way home we stopped after 775 miles ( 300 of it being through 1 lane highway repairs) in Grand Junction, pulling in to what appears to be the typical Hotel row. We checked rates & overall outward appearance, knowing we were not going to swim or eat..but simply go to bed.. like sleep deprived road tired idiots choose this Hotel. The front desk clerk pointed out the pool, gave us a room map, and told us not to miss the "hot breakfast", afterwards we headed to our room. In building C, in the back facing a hill. We were in a room on the bottom floor, center. Upon opening the door we were greeted by the smell of water damage, stale cigarettes, and oldness. I wanted to just leave but my husband assured me it was going to be "ok". I sprayed the room with lysol, which helped. We also opened the window keeping it open with a stick. I was cross eyed tired, as was my husband. The entire hotel was old, tired, and worn out which pretty much matched how we felt...but I am sure we smelled better!
FYI. The hot breakfast was toast. Really.
This place is a dump.
