I reserved 6 rooms this past weekend to go to the National Quartet Convention in Louisville, KY for my family and friends. I was honestly embarrassed by the condition of the establishment and hated that I was the one responsible for choosing the motel. The rooms were not filthy dirty but were far from clean. Half of the guest room amenities promised were not included. Allow me to highlight a few of my observations from the two nights.
You can enjoy a fresh pot of coffee made from the provided coffee maker providing of course that you bring your own coffee and maybe your own water unless you are ok with filling it from the bathtub as the sink outside the bathroom may or may not work.
Please also make sure that you are really close to the people that you are staying with because if you need more than the two towels you must share with someone else (so let the hairy people shower last).
While HBO 1, 2, and 3 were not provided as promised, free R-rated entertainment was provided from the lovely couple in room 208 that decided to consummate their relationship just outside of their room.
So I do not give you the wrong impression, it wasn’t all negative, there were some positives things to the establishment.
The refrigerator, microwave, lamp, and TV worked well however you must chose which combination you want to use at any given time as they all share a two plug outlet.
For those of you who may suffer from swelling in the legs or recovering from an ankle or knee injury these beds are perfect for you as they will keep you legs elevated over your head at all times.
The rooms are perfect for the couples that prefer different room temperatures. The uniquely designed air conditioner window unit allows your room to cycle plus or minus 5 degrees every half hour allowing the both of you to be comfortable at least once per hour.
You will enjoy the free continental breakfast which consists of a wide variety of two cereals and frozen day old donuts. You will also enjoy the “freshly squeezed” orange juice served directly from the ergonomically designed SunnyD jug.
For those of you who enjoy a good workout while you are away from home, you will enjoy the lavish workout room which consists of a roomy floor that is perfect for jogging in place and push-ups or sit-ups.
All in all we had a good weekend we had many many laughs (most at my expense) at the quality of the motel. We were worried at the security of our belongings in the rooms when we were out and our cars when we were in the rooms over night but we did manage to escape without anything major happening. All that being said; I would not recommend to anyone to stay here especially anyone with small children.
