A team of us came down to Florida to work on a campaign. Our job booked us at this motel on short notice. What a hell hole. This place was grimy and made you feel dirty. The room was roomy though and had a desk and fridge. Whoop-De-do. Wads of chewing gum stuffed into the corners of the shower. Hookers outside your room. Pimps loitering about. We come back to our room one night and someone has tried to break into our room through the window. This motel is not safe, makes your skin crawl. They picked it because it had an outdoor pool but to be honest nobody would dare step foot in that pool.
A man on a bicycle approached one of my co workers outside his room asking shady questions about where we're from, how many of us were in each room, and how long we were going to be here. He than proceeded to attempt to sell him drugs. A similar instance happened to a different co worker of mine earlier that same night! Our female co workers stayed in their rooms and refused to open the door at night for anyone because of the shady crowd walking around.
On a lighter note, the gyros across the way at Salem's are very good. lol
