I'm not sure what the big deal is, this place was clearly an attempt at pleasing the horror movie buffs. As you enter, you are greeted by 4 or 5 life-sized dolls of children hiding in various corners as if counting for hide-and-seek (Child's Play, here's Chucky!). The hallways smelled of rotting eggs, which was admittedly a poor attempt at split pea soup (The Exorcist) but well appreciated for the attempt. The blood stain on the carpet gave it a Shining-esque appeal, but they needed to install an old elevator for blood to flood out of. For those who want to find religion, they even offer a Buddha statue in the parking lot, right next to the wild west wagons and the trailer hauling old junker cars (maybe a tip of the hat to Christine?).
The patch-work carpet repairs and cigarette burns were flawed though, along with the rock hard bed (maybe like being a sacrifice to a pagan god on a rock altar?), I can't think of what movie that may be for. I wanted to pull up the carpet repair to see if I could maybe find a beating heart but I didn't have the money to be charged extra since after fees, you pay 90 per night.
The front desk will rent your room out to someone else when they have no other bookings or cars in the lot and take 15 minutes to figure out how to check you in, with 5 calls to the manager who lives on site (read the 5 star review about "so nice I moved in!" and guess who wrote that one...). Loved the scrap metal collector who would pull up each day and park his crap across 4 spaces, leaving even fewer spots to park in of their 15 total spots, minus the ones taken by the junker car trailer, but they were empty when we went so parking still won't be an issue.
Also, check in at 3am and expect room service to be walking through your door at 9 asking why you haven't checked out yet (check out is at 11, NOT 12 as listed on this site) even though you booked a second night.
