My sister, her dog and I recently drove back from Cape San Blas, Florida to New York and originally intended to sleep the night away at a Holiday Inn in Fayetville. We have made the assumption rooms would be available and didn't think of making reservations earlier. Upon arrival, we found out there was a motorcycle convention in town and all the rooms have been booked except for one which wasn't pet friendly. Due to the fact that it was already approaching midnight we opted for a hotel down the street: Econo Lodge. We knew it was going to be a crappy hotel considering the fee for the night was $50 but we were so exhausted from driving that all we cared about at that moment was getting a couple of hours of sleep. The staff was friendly, however; as soon as we found our room which was around the corner, away from the lobby and far in the back of the parking lot While walking to our room, we knew this wasn't a good idea when we noticed men underwear drying on portable barbecue outside of one of the rooms, the smell of pot was another clue combined with an arrival of a state trooper who was parking his car. In short, we didn't even get to see the room, the men who stayed there got so excited upon seeing two women that we knew right there and then this wouldn't be a peaceful night if we had attempted to lodge there. In short we left and drove another 3 hours to a Holiday Inn in Maryland which we will always stay in from now on. Personal experience, you get what you pay for but it is grimy, dark and unsafe.
