So I found Paul's Motel and decided to stay there since it appeared cheaper than the other hotels in the immediate area. My goal was to find somewhere to lie down for the night; not to be pampered.
I pull up and there are maybe 3 vehicles and 30 rooms available. When I get to the office, I have to wait what seemed like forever for the attendant to slither to the window. He is an older gentleman who exhibited was not rude, but definitely did not come across as happy to be there.
Finally, I get my room. Upon walking in, I see what would seem like an old cabin like room. None of the furniture matched, bit that was fine. What wasn't fine was the smell of Bruit cologne that punched me in the face. It smelled like someone poured an entire bottle on the floor.
Next, I went into the bathroom...the toilet bowl brush was left inside the toilet. It was actually pushed in the hole and it almost submerged the entire brush, handle and all, in the water. I pulled it out and was going to set it in the holder, but surprise! There was no holder in site, therefore, I tossed it in the shower.
When I was pulling the toilet bowl brush out of there, I happened to glance down at the toilet more closely...wow...pubic hairs...for me?!?!?! I guess they leave them for you instead of a mint on your pillow.
I guess overall, it was alright for one night. I wouldn't stay for any extended period though. The rooms are unique, but the staff could have put in a smidge more work when it came to cleaning.
