I parked my car at around 8:30 PM at the romney having just driven in from Sanfrancisco...So I was kinda of tired.. My first impression is , parking is a bit tight and be prepared to back out of your spot onto 66. Second, the place is a bit of a dump. it's an inexpensive dump ,but a dump none the less. You go to the office and you have to open two doors ;one a screen door the second a security door? I checked in and the office person offered two suggestions for dinner, and I was told to just go, not even bother checking into my room, because the restaurants closed at 9. So that was nice. (I don't go to any restaurant just before closing, because it peeves off the wait staff to have diners that close to the end of their shifts). So I just moved my car to infront of my room and was prepared to open the door, when a youngish kitty cat , gray and skittish rounded the corner to great me. It seemed like it wanted to enter my room but didn't. Off to the left (west side of the building) there seems to be piles of junk everywhere , so maybe little kitty was looking for mice or rats.
Nice little kitty though, meowed a quick greeting but scampered away when I stepped closer to it.
The room is beat up, old as the motel is and needs up dating. but it's a 1 star motel not a 4 star hotel and not anything special. It's certainly not quaint by any stretch of the imagination..
You do have the feeling of insecurity at this motel and I would say at any of the others I walked by the next morning, a few lower class locals milling about, seemingly wishing to smash a car window... There's one on the far east side of town....that didn't seem too too bad , but its certainly not walking distance to any restaurants in the "downtown" area of seligman...so if you want to be close to the bars or restaurants, it's the Supai or the romney or a couple of other equally disappointing looking choices.
I'd lock the car, take everything into the room then take every thing back out when you go to gas up your car or eat at restaurants. the town itself seems low life ish...people drifting in off the freeway , locals that pick up cigarette butts off the ground and smoke em ...people like that.
Nothing happened.....but you just got the feeling it was simply a matter of time before the sheriff was called. Weather was good though!
