1/5 Terrible

I'm very sorry I got a room here. They're more like cabins. That weird curry smell hit me in the face when I walked into the office and I thought, "oh no". That means it's going to be a cheap room and bad service. Sure enough, Mrs. Enlightenment comes around the corner barely speaking, rude, and not showing appreciation that fools like me help keep her business running one more day. After being stared down by her husband in the parking lot for no reason, I get to my room and it absolutely smelled horrible! It was a mixture or chlorine, paint, dampness, dirt, bacteria, and other things all mixed up in one. My clothes smelled like that room the entire day after checking out. The room felt dirty and the bathroom was worse with debris all over the floor and things. The heat didn't work. The window didn't open. The bathroom didn't smell as bad but the blinds didn't cover the whole window, only half. Anybody could look right in from outside. And the bathroom window had bars. If there's a fire and you can't get out through the front door, you're trapped. The bed pillows were weird and the room had insects in it. The motel sits in the middle of nothing. The only thing you can walk to is Stater Bros and a drug store. It's dark on a long stretch of highway. Oh, and next door is a hole in the wall bar blasting music all evening until the morning. I really think the owners are clueless about the complaints we give. In their country, the rooms are good enough for them, don't know.
