We had reservations, when we got to town we called for directions, Dave the manager got us lost, and head back out of town, called back, and he had us talk with another lady, she finely figured out where we were (didn't know where the library was 1 mi away)
When we arrived they had trouble with the shared fax creditcard machine line ... After 15 min we got the keys to room #27 ... We noticed four hoodlums up on the balcony which had just come out of #26 ... smoking ... The rooms and balcony are non-smoking ... The whole parking lot smelled like a ashtray!
I pull up to park in the only available space right next to another old Benz the same color as mine but pretty much trashed ... The owner if the car come running out to greet us ... Come to find out he is a "realtor" that has been living there for over nine months!
We grab our bags and head up the concrete stairs that had the edges broken off, and the out door carpet worn out and torn ...
The toilet had "spots" on the rim, and the seat was old and checked ... No way to know if it really was clean ... Even though my wife first used her own sanitizer on it .. We decided we were not happy!
We looked around and called a bunch of places to find a pet friendly place that had a room, we eventually found The El Colorado Lodge! Great Place!
I then went back to tell them we were not gonna stay at the Red Wing Motel and told them why.
The lady who canceled our room apologized and said that it is one of the better rooms, and that she had checked it yesterday ... The manager was there to help her with the credit to our card, as she appeared fairly new to the machine
It is not a good quiet place to stay, as there are young people hanging around from the skate board park next door ... And a party hardy place ... Byob;)
