Note to all motel/hotel owners and managers: allowing staff to hand around in front of the entry door, barefoot while holding a beer can in one hand, a cigarette in the other is a VERY BAD idea! Somehow, this doesn’t portray an image of a clean, respectable or safe place to stay, even for one night. Yes, I know, it was the day Stroudsburg celebrated St. Patrick’s Day (two weeks late – don’t get that one), but, nonetheless, the look is far from professional. Despite this inauspicious “welcome” I left the car under the portico and started toward the lobby, intending to either check in or cancel my reservation should the unprofessional outdoor image prove a good portend for the motel itself. I need not have bothered, for before I could reach the door, a woman called out “Yeah…you need to check in or something?” It was the same barefoot woman with the beer and cigarette. This was all I needed to see or hear. I got back into my car, left and called the main number to cancel my reservation. Who knows? Perhaps this was an isolated incident in an otherwise well run property, or, perhaps it’s an indicator that management needs to tighten things up a tad.
