This was probably the worst motel experience I've ever had, and I have stayed in a lot of lower budget places in my life. This place was just supposed to be a cheap, no fuss spot to sleep on our first night in town after relocating to Portland, but it was a nightmare. We arrived exhausted after a long drive, so at first the sketchy folks hanging around the lobby didn't really register with us. Upstairs, we discovered mystery pet hair all over the carpet (awesome since two of us are super allergic) and an army of ants marching across the counter between the sink and fridge. To top it off, we'd booked a non-smoking room, also due to allergies, only to find that the entire floor below us was smoking rooms and folks were hanging around outside our door on the balcony smoking as well. Coming back from picking up food, my husband and housemate spotted a couple of obvious prostitutes doing business in the parking lot and got accosted by some strung out woman who asked if she could come stay in our room with us. At this point we realized that anything we left in the car would surely be gone by morning, so we unloaded our mountain of stuff and prepared for an unpleasant night, only to discover 20 minutes later that the ants were also IN THE BEDS. Ugh. Despite total exhaustion, we packed everything back into the car and left. It was 1 am before we found another place to stay.
