They say you only get one chance to make a first impression.
There was a sorta low rider car and a big broken down looking pick up truck in the front when we pulled in. I thought they were guests vehicles and went inside.
The young man behind the counter was wearing a collared shirt and tie but his close cropped hair and the jail house tattoos around his throatband neck reminded me of gang bangers from East LA. He had my reservation and got me the keys. I went out to get my wife and teenage son and I noticed a couple of kids/teens playing video games on the "lobby" waiting room TV. The tiny elevator was too claustrophobically small for my wife so she walked up the stairs and we met at the room.
The small non-smoking room smelled musty and funky. We open the window wide to try and air the place out while we unpacked and relaxed. When atmosphere was clear and we shut the window we turned on the heater we found the duct controls only shot heat straight up which blew the curtins all over. Using ingenuity we solved the problem. My son was too tired to go for dinner so he stayed in the room while we went out for dinner.
When we went down the stairs the lights were sort of flickering on one landing right out of a horror movie.
After dinner we again noticed several beat up cars in parking lot and a few more people hanging around the lobby. Guests?
About mid night loud voices from out side got our attention but they clamed down after a few minutes. At 4am a honking sound woke me. Sounded like air in the water lines or something.
Checkout was smooth. Mature looking woman was at desk and she thanked us for staying.
I would try another place to stay next time I'm in Corvallis.
