I stay in motels on average 3-4 nights a week, every night in a different city. This has got to be the wost motel yet!
The staff member at check in was very friendly, etc. She even helped me find some dinner. When I got to the room I noticed that it was an old room that needs serous updating. It had a musty smell, room wasnt very clean but hey, the A/C worked great! Walked into the bathroom to find a used bar of soap in one of the soap holders in the bathtub/shower from a previous guest. Lots of stains and just nasty dirt and dust all over the bathroom area. In fact the light fixtures were covered in dust.
I ended up with a double room because all she had with king bed was smoking. Now Im glad. I noticed some kind of a nasty looking shiny stain on one of the comforters. Both beds were horribly uncomfortable. Woke up the next morning with a backache.
Carpet was filthy and the door wouldnt open all of the way because the fridge was in the way. The TV was old and had a horrible fuzzy picture. In fact there was no audio on a couple of the stations.
When I checked out I thought that they had forgot to apply my discount for using my Corporate Lodging Card as the bill was $70 plus tax. I asked the morning clerk and was told that is the discount. He told me they normally get $100 for the room. I laughed as I thought that he was messing with me but he was serious!
I told him that I am on the road alot and I normally pay anywhere from $35 to $50 a night and the places I stay are MUCH nicer than this one. In fact many are nice suites. He just looked at me and said they charge so much because they are the only motel in Midland that accepts the CLC card and because of the oil boom. So in other words they charge an outrageous amount for the rooms because they can.
I told him next time I will drive the 15 miles to Odessa and stay there.
Oh, and no hot breakfast here... Just pastries and waffles.
On the bright side, they do have plenty of truck parking.
