Hot and cold!
Posted Oct 14, 2015
There're only a few items that puts a motel in the never-return category. This place earned it with one of such: shower water temperature that could sent a baby to the ER!
First off, the paint on the door was peeling. I could overlook that if it's the only problem. But as typically the case, it's a sign of poor maintenance that shows on other things too.
Still, I almost let it go because the bathroom was reasonably clean and the bed was reasonably comfy. Those are usually the only other items I care about in a place for a night.
Until shower time, that is. The water temperature fluctuated so wildly, it went from ice cold to scolding hot in a matter of a 15 seconds!!! I had to jump out of the shower more than once to avoid the shock of cold water, and then again the risk of burning my skin off!
Plenty of other small annoyance too.
- There's no wi-fi in the room, you have to carry your laptop to the main lodge to use wi-fi.
- There's no hair dryer in the room either. Again, you need to trot to the main lodge to borrow one if needed
- There's a sauna but it wasn't turned on... on a chilly holiday weekend
- The road in and out of the complex was in horrible shape. There's a sign of "Speed Bump" but the bumps weren't the purposefully made kind, just craters from long time lack of maintenance.
For a place that cost north of $100, that's a lot of negatives.
