After having no luck finding another place to stay, I reserved a room at the Showboat. I'd driven by several time and was concerned that the interior was as rundown as the exterior. My night's stay confirmed my concerns. The lobby area was an unwelcoming combination of hot, foul smelling air and badly worn carpet and furniture. The room I was given (119) wasn't any better. A stench reminiscent of a blend of mold, dirt (as in soil) and body odor filled the dank room, which had a non-functioning microwave and air conditioner. I asked for another room and was given one on the second floor (215). It also had a peculiar smell but had a working air conditioner, microwave and refrigerator. Neither of the rooms were very clean, both having smears and stains on the furniture and carpet, as well in the bathrooms. In addition, the noise level was quite high and room walls failed to screen out sounds (including sneezing and expelling gas) from adjacent lodgings. Several people wandered up and down the second floor hall smoking cigarettes and arguing with each other. At 1:30 AM, I was awoken by a commotion in the hall. When I looked out the door peephole, I was treated to the sight of a man strolling down the hall with his underwear (tighty whities) slung below his buttocks smoking a cigarette and being yelled at by his female companion. After the commotion, I decided to get a drink of water before going back to bed, only to make a revolting discovery. I pulled apart two wrapped plastic cups and watched small dead insects fall from where they had been wedged between them. After that, seeing food from the "continental breakfast" (containers of cereal on a folding card table in the lobby) strewn in the second floor hallway and all over the staircase was an anti-climax. The Showboat Motel, without a doubt, has some of the worst accommodations in which I've ever had the misfortune of staying.
