Could not find a place that would let us stay with our small pug dog that stays in his carrier, so the U-Haul company called around and found this place who said they would allow it this one time. We arrive, the outside looks quaint, nice new parking lot and paint job. We see the owner's wife dragging a bag of dirty linen across the parking lot which raised our eyebrows. We are shown to our room, and I just stood there in shock. The owner went in and played around with the television and remote which were very old and dirty. We tried to settle in, but the more I looked at and 'smelled' the room, I just could NOT picture staying in the room, let alone the bed. The room smelled of intense old body odor, feet, and feces, with a nice hint of crack cocaine. No kidding... The bed closest to the bathroom door had a large indent about 3" deep the size and shape of a large person's behind. Didn't want to know who why or what... So I opened the bathroom door and was almost knocked over by the intense septic tank fumes. The owner admitted they had just pumped it out, but the room was still very unlivable.
We used their wi-fi to find another hotel that took our pet, that was much much better. Camping out in the truck would have been more acceptable! They only refunded 50% of our rate for a 20 minutes check in...
