You get what you pay for and there are times you go on the cheap - and still overpay. This was one of those times. We stayed at this Red Roof Inn in Michigan City, IN on our way home from Northern Michigan. We knew this would be pretty much a bare bones motel, but that doesn't mean one has to be talked to in a condescending and rude manner. Our check-in was fine with the desk clerk, but things changed when the manager appeared to answer a question for her. He was surly from the get-go and it went downhill from there. Every word he said had an arrogant tone, we've yet to understand why. There was a slight problem with our reservation, but it was not on our end, but he kept implying that we did it wrong, didn't understand, etc. He only wanted anyone but his staff to be at fault. Then there's the room. Upon first glance it was cute enough. Seemed like it was recently updated, but that was just the appearance. The bed was lumpy, mattress kind of thin. The furniture was all opened. So if the small rack for hanging your clothes wasn't enough, you had no drawers. You would have to just pile your clothes up, beginning at virtually floor level into the opened cabinet. Then there is the very dimly lit bathroom - I think dimly lit on purpose so that you could not tell exactly what kind of black stains were covering the bottom of the tub. And the lack of a toilet seat lid! It wasn't missing - it was never there. So if you were to want to venture into this tub in this tiny little dark bathroom, you had no place to put anything down. One last thing, should you decide to chance this motel with it's attractive low rate - a "Deluxe" room is the same as all the others, it just has a small Microwave/Fridge/Freezer combo.
