I was staying at the Golden Bear Inn for a job interview the next day. Right when I walked into my room I found a box labeled “love cuffs” underneath my bed along with some make-up and goldfish. I don’t want to get into the images that were running through my head but it was a disturbing environment. I just needed a place to sleep, wake up, and walk to my daylong job-interview. I spoke to them prior to me checking in an they knew I would be gone all day. I found the trashy make-up that I threw away and eye liner on a counter top in my room. The TV channel was flipped to another station. I am 90% sure someone “used” my room when I was gone. The Golden Bear Inn experience isn’t one that I will EVER be having again.
