I have been all over North America and have stayed in a wide variety of hotels, motels, & dumps, but this one is by far the worst! First of all, I must note that the staff did the best they could, but they were as frustrated as the travellers. Apparently the owner who lives out of town sent his manager out of town for the past month to run another motel(into the ground?). The staff are untrained in running a motel and have no authority or finances to call repair services, like a locksmith! My situation was that due to a funeral we had to scrounge for a place to stay. The problems were as follows, the door lock was broken, they offered us a different room, but it was a smoking room that was so nasty that it would've gagged a maggot! The owner came up to fix the lock, but just because you have a screwdriver and hammer doesn't make you a locksmith! I should know...I was a Certified Locksmith for 15+ years. The staff said they could secure the room and unlock it manually for us and due to no other options being available and they were going to give a discount, we decided to stay. Our mistake! It was around 11PM when we finally got into our room. We found that the lock wouldn't even lock from the inside. The peephole was broken and anyone could look into the room. The room looked like it had newer paint and they had new flatsceen TV. The linens looked clean, but the carpets were filthy with lots of stains and gum(?) stuck in it. I never took my shoes off until I got into bed. I even found gum stuck on the wall! The air conditioner was barely able to maintain a liveable temperature. The microwave didn't work. The lamp shades were stained. I didn't see any signs of pests...I guess even they have higher standards! When we opened the door to the hallway in the morning the odors made me gag! I ran into several people that were also here for the funeral and we all had stories of woe from staying overnight at this dump! I will never stay here again! I need a shower, perhaps a penicillin shot, and I think I need to incinerate my clothing and luggage!
