There was a convention "AEE"? in town that weekend, it turned out. So places were booked. So I panicked & took the room. The rating looked ok. DON'T DO IT!!!!! It is a DIVE! Locals apparently know this.
You can tell as soon as you walk into the front reception area & again see the clerk (though she was pleasant). You can tell again by the smell as soon as you walk into the hall. Then you can tell again by the Different set of smells in the room. I assume it has all been flooded multiple times, or something. Very aging old hotel (you can still see the imprint of the old "Econo" part of the original title). Now called "Executive" lodge! Very funny, truly!
Plan on several things to not work (lights, drains...). Vowed my bare feet would not touch the floor. It did have a few normal looking lost souls like ourselves, but most other customers appeared....properly located.
