After a fairly long arduous ride, we arrived at what appeared to be a run-down motel. The exterior of the building was extremely dirty. It was located in an industrial part of Woodridge amidst abandoned, dilapidated former business buildings. My wife and I were intially concerned for our safety in this part of the community. However, we swallowed hard and went inside. We were greeted by several of the friendliest people we have ever encountered. This helped greatly to diminish our fears. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. We were, however, disappointed in certain aspects of the room accomodations (no iron, bathtub stopper not functional and dim room lighting). Nor was the room ready upon our arrival (we arrived at 4:30pm and the room was supposed to ahve been ready for us by 2:00pm). We were also disappointed in the continental breakfast. There were no sticky buns or do-nuts, no milk or cereals. The only food offerings were plain bagels, somewhat stale bread and tiny muffins. The coffee, however, was excellent.
