I travel for business and will look for a room using my phone internet connection. I found this property and it was close to where I needed to be for work. On my phone the pic looked nice.
I always call ahead and one of the questions is "do you have truck parking and where is it" I was told yes and the parking area is large so that wouldnt be an issue.
I drive a truck so I have to make wide turns. I am taking 2 lanes to make the turn into the parking lot when some jerk pulls his mustang up to my front bumper and just sits in his car staring at me and wont move. Now I am blocking the access road. I jump out and ask what is going on and he tells me that he used to work there and that I cant come in that way. Long story short, I backed out and parked next door in a dirt lot.
On the way i, I turned the corner and was greeted by a big loud bark. There was a pit bull type dog locked inside the pool area with food/water bowls and dog toys. Then when I went inside to be greeted by a ghetto looking girl. She was nice though. I asked about truck parking and was told to park where ever. After looking around I saw that this place is a total dump, inside and out.
I just had this gut feeling that I needed to go somewhere else so I went to a property that I have stayed in the past. I am here right now and have no issues with this property.
After seeing what I saw, I would never recommend this property to anyone.
