I should first note that this was a cheap hotel, so I really wasn't expecting very much. We arrived in the late evening and first thing on arrival, my son and his girlfriend witnessed a vehicle back into another in the parking lot and drive off. When they reported it to the front desk, with a description and a partial plate number of the drive-off, the desk clerk said, "I know whose car got hit. I'm sure glad I won't be here in the morning when she finds it." No indication that she intended to call the hotel guest and give them the opportunity to report it to the police.
My son said it best: "Mom, this place is kind of sketchy."
The rooms were tiny and pretty run down: the beds were uncomfortable and the sheets were so threadbare they were nearly transparent. The coffee cups in the full kitchen (one of the reasons I reserved this hotel) were cracked, one to the point that it leaked. There was a huge gap under the door, which opened to the outside, and I kept thinking about bugs crawling underneath it. It suffices to say that we didn't leave anything on the floor. There isn't daily housekeeping, which is fine, but when I tried to get a packet of coffee from the front desk, they had locked the lobby door a half hour early and when I called them they said, "We don't have any." I was able to get one off the housekeeper's cart in the morning.
People obviously smoked in the elevator, which delivered the defining moment of our stay there: The elevator opened on the ground floor and out stepped this wild-eyed old guy with a pit bull on a leash and a urine bag strapped to his leg.
