Eighteen-Wheelers and Milk
Posted Dec 20, 2016 on Orbitz
This is a nice basic hotel at a good price. I like to go here each time I visit Ames because of that. However, on this last trip, there were two nasty issues that came up. I'd rather be on the northern side of the motel because the highway noise and restaurant lights on the south side are a bit much. Unfortunately, the motel allows eighteen-wheelers to park overnight with their engines running...on the north side. Yes, it's winter, and there is a problem starting them in below freezing weather, but this is horribly annoying, as it's like having the highway traffic right next to your window droning all night long. The other thing was not cleaning the milk containers after each breakfast. It's not very nice when a dozen solid cream chunks fall into ones cereal.
Also, I noticed the thermostat was not adjustable, stuck at 70.
