I was staying a night in late September. At daytime there were temperatures in the 40ies, at night in the twenties. When I arrived, all windows in the room were open and the room was really cold: 53°F (at least there was a thermometer to check). The main heating system was completely off (probably hasn't been switched on for the season yet), there was only a small portable electric heater which primarily made noise, not heat - it managed to raise the temperature during the night by just 3°F.
The bed had only very thing blankets and I was really freezing in bed. In the morning, I looked forward for a hot shower. And the shower really had hot water - for about 2 minutes, then it started to cool down... If somebody had been accompanying me, she would not have had the chance to warm up in the shower.
It's sad because it would have been so easy for the motel to accomodate for the climate:
- have the room service close open windows
- provide warm blankets
- or maybe even turn on the heating system based on temperatures, not on some fixed schedule.
The fact that all this happend in Pagosa Springs which has hot springs and geothermal energy readily available makes this even more pathetic.
The room itself was dated and worn down. Ok to sleep for a night, but if I wanted to stay longer, I would prefer something more attractive.
