We had little in the way of options. It was late, strange town, exhausted, not sure where else we could find a reasonable place without much more searching, so we stayed here.
Said it was a Choice motel, which usually have been acceptable.
It was bizarre. Owners/managers/family or whatever sitting around doing nothing. Meanwhile, floors have goo on them, room was dirty, remote control broken and covered with goo, few towels, no shampoo or rinse, towel bar was a booby trap--too short for the brackets and came off when you reached for a towel, dropping wash cloths and towels onto the toilet and floor. Stains on pillows. Mattress nearly worn out. Nothing smelled clean. Hair on bathroom floor and in the tub. Didn't see all this when we checked in; he showed us a different room when I asked to see one (the one right off the lobby). Our mistake was not leaving immediately.
It was one of those places where you don't want to touch anything.
Tiny office and "breakfast" area, no place to sit and eat, no trays to take stuff back to the room. Breakfast: the cheapest cereal available--frosted flakes and froot loops--cheap bread, gross coffee, some orange dye stuff that tastes like saccharin. Nothing appeared fresh and carefully chosen. Like someone made a trip to the day-old store and bought whatever was cheapest. No maid service in sight to start cleaning in the morning. Family living on sight and watching from the one couch in the lobby.
Hard core porn on the TV and loud sex sounds could be heard in the hallway. The porn was not something you subscribe to or that requires extra steps to view it; no, this was just one of the channels. You are channel surfing and there it is! We were traveling with a child. Thanks a lot !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also saw what appeared to be blood splatters on bathroom door and wall; it reminded me of things I see on the TV where someone has been shooting up and blood squirts onto the wall.
We don't require a lot. Modest surroundings are fine. But here there was little evidence of pride and simple effort to make a clean, desirable place. It is a building that once was very nice. What happened? And what kind of clientele do they cater to?
Neither Choice corporate nor this place has refunded my money, as requested.
Room Tip: Avoid this place.
