First, the good points: check-in was hassle-free; the room was clean and comfortable; the little motel soap was Dove brand real soap. Now the bad points. On a Friday evening, there were four drunk men wandering around the motel's parking lot. When my husband mentioned this to the desk clerk, she responded that they had only been out there for two hours and she was waiting to see if they left before she called the cops. Two hours. She did call the cops then, and they took care of the problem, but we were concerned that she waited so long and thought nothing of it. After all, these guys were peering into parked cars, not just sitting in the parking lot killing time. On Saturday morning, we went downstairs to have our continental breakfast. There was a coffee display with four thermal carafes. Two were labeled "regular" and one was labeled "decaf." (The other was for hot water.) Only halfway through the posted breakfast time, there was no decaf left in the carafe. When I asked if they'd be making more, the desk clerk told me no. I was disappointed, but I just planned on getting there earlier the next morning. On Saturday evening we went out to an early dinner. Upon returning, we found that both disabled-accessible parking places were occupied by cars without permits. We mentioned this to the desk clerk, and she feigned interest. It turns out that the motel was installing new carpets that weekend, and they needed those spaces for the workers. On Sunday morning, I went downstairs in hopes of finding some decaf coffee. Again, the carafe was empty. I asked the desk clerk again (a different lady), and she told me they never make decaf. When asked why they display the decaf carafe, she explained that that's the way the display was supposed to look. They always set out an empty carafe marked "decaf." The lack of concern for their guests and especially disabled guests really upset me. I plan on writing to corporate about this location.
