We arrived around midnight to an area that was completely sold out. The owner took full advantage of that and charged us $170 for a 1/2 star, at best, motel. The outside was cute in the dark. The inside was shabby. We would have asked for our money back and gone a little further south except when we arrived in the motel office the guy was conveniently on the phone saying he "only had one room left and it was $170 and he could not wait an hour". He "obviously" was selling us the last room and as he'd turned down a customer for us would not be obliged to refund our money if we complained after we saw the room. A pretty good scam and we were suckered. After we left the next day I called to find the actual room rate was $55.
