The last time I did a review, we had actually stayed the night at the Motor Inn.
This time we weren't even given a chance to book a room!
We live in the general area, but from time to time, we stay at a motel in Fort Garland since we are building a house and like to "get away" from the business of building.
My husband called over to book a room, identified who he was, since the owner DOES know who we are. Anna said straight out, "No, I don't want you renting my rooms, you smoke". Well, even though my husband IS a smoker, he has never smoked inside - including our own house. And he told her that. She said, "Well, you smelll like smoke." With that being said, he politely asked her if she wanted our business or not. She said, "No!"
So, we booked the Lodge down the street where the owners are pleasant and welcoming. And NO, we did NOT request a smoking room at the Lodge. As I said, my husband does NOT smoke inside - ever!
Shame on you, Anna!
