My buddies and I stayed in the Passport Inn for a weekend in NYC/Atl City. The only reason we chose this hotel is because on Priceline.com they accepted a bid of of $20/night. When that averages to $5/person/night...it's not so bad. I figure it's as cheap as Baltic Ave on Monopoly.
However, if one decides to stay in at $20/night hotel, certain risks are involved...such as (but not limited to): meeting shady characters, unvaccumed floor, too few towels, monochrome TV set, roaches as bedmates, and the potential to receive a communicable disease from someone with whom you have never communicated in any way.
The comforters were most likely made during the Carter administration and had probably not been washed since Clinton's. The "continental breakfast" involved 2 muffins and 3 danishes...we at them all (sorry if you stayed there when we did) and a pot of coffee that I believe was made with river water strained through old Oreos. Don't try it.
Let's be honest...the Passport Inn is a dirtbag motel that sits next to a Denny's. If you're ok slumming with your buddies then go for it, but do not take a girl there. Ever. She'll either shun you, dump you, divorce you, or take out a restraining order on you.
The Passport Inn is like a used Dodge Neon previously owned by a rental company. You know it's going to be terribly cramped and uncomfortable, you know it has a seedy past, you sure don't want to be seen in it, and any woman that sees you there will immediately know you're broke...but at the end of the day it's cheap and will do its part in getting you to the Casino.
