Just Great, Very Unique
Posted Jul 24, 2016
When we walked into the lobby it was like walking into a furnace; the air conditioner was out, which is not a good thing in July in Texarkana. When we checked in the front desk clerk told us one room number, but gave us a card that opened another room which was, to say the least, a little embarrassing. Many motels have a small map of the motel that they use to direct their guests to their rooms, that would have helped quite a bit in clearing up the room number confusion. This must happen pretty often since someone tried to open our room door with a card in the middle of the night. We, of course and very fortunately, had the door latched shut with the dead bolt, which actually worked, but the secondary door latch was completely broken and not operational.
The room itself... no. Never again. We've stayed in some fairly interesting motels, but none quite like this. We were afraid to sit on the easy chair; for a non-smoking motel the bedspread had an unusual number of cigarette burn holes, the TV remote was practically useless, the walls around the bath tub were peeling, there were water stains on the ceiling, and the floor around the door was, well, very soft and waving. At some point in the distant past the room had a hair dryer hanging in the bathroom, but it was long gone and the electrical outlet in the bathroom was not operational.
Our one night stay was, for us, a very unique travel experience
