We took a stopoff from driving on I-95 to catch a nap and let our co-travelers, my cats, rest. There were several hotels on this little stretch, and we tried them in order until we found one that allowed animals. The first that allowed animals was full, so they told us to try the hotel next door, which didn't allow pets. At a loss, we tried the Microtel, the end of the line of hotels. The lobby was nice, brightly lit, warm. The clerk was very friendly. She asked me if we wanted smoking or non, and I replied "non", but there weren't any non-smoking rooms left. So I don't know about that, but we took a room in the smoking section out of sheer exhaustion, despite myself being asthmatic. The customer after me was offered a non-smoking room.
After transporting cats and luggage up to the room, I began to lose my mind. The place stunk. Not of cigarettes, but general rotten stink. The heater blew out stenches and periods of cold air, so eventually we just shut it off (during winter!). There were burn holes and marks on everything, right through the fabric of the bedspread in a lot of places. The room was extremely tiny...micro, if you will. The window was nice, it had a foam seat cushion bench and triangle pillow on it. There was a rectangular hole in the wall that we had to cover because the cats kept trying to jump in it. The furniture was dirty and worn. My cats spent the night sitting at the room door because the inch-high bottom was enough for them to see out of (I would have put them in their travel kennels, because the floor was disgusting, but there wasn't space for breathing much less for kennels!). We were completely freaked out by the place, and although we checked in very late, we were out by 5am.
