Better than sleeping at the rest stop
Posted Jun 12, 2013
We shouldn't complain about our stay because we were grateful Expedia found us the last room for a Wednesday night in the Elko-Carlin-Battle Mountain-Winnemucca region because of mining convention. The parking lot was overflowing, so people were double-parked. It was a hot night on the desert, so patrons were in the parking lot drinking, smoking, and listening to music.
The people at the front desk when we arrived were complaining of having no pillows in their room. The stairway to our room was littered with debris and the carpet was dirty and the hallways had piles of laundry and service equipment. We only had two thin bath towels and one hand towel. The thin fitted sheet did not stay on the mattress during the night, popping loose repeatedly. Our two pillows were hard as rock.
