Rockville, Maryland - you would suppose that a major chain like Red Roof would be operating a nicer hotel than the Red Roof we stayed at.
I knew we were in trouble when at 9:15 PM you had to hit a buzzer to get into the lobby.
I knew I was in trouble when the desk clerk looked like a Columbian drug lord from a Tom Clancey movie.
I knew I was in trouble when the night 'maid' was a guy standing in the lobby talking to the desk clerk in a language that was not English.
I knew I was in trouble when the room we were given had never been cleaned or had the beds made during the day and the blankets and pillows were piled on the bed.
I felt better when the desk clerk said we could have another room just down the walk and we did not have to carry our stuff a long way.
I felt better when I got into the room and it smelled fresh and clean and freshly painted.
I knew I was in trouble when there were no trash cans, the towels were paper thin, there was no shampoo, but two tiny bars of soap.
I knew I was in trouble when some drunk managed to open our room door even though it was shut ... the automatic locking device on the handle didn't work. The deadbolt did, but that was of limited comfort.
No breakfast - just machine made coffee. NO free internet. Beat to death TV with 11 channels. Limited parking.
At least it was quiet and we slept well. Did I mention that the bathroom was designed for someone no bigger than Twiggy...
