Super 8 isn't any better than a Red Roof Inn.

:laugh2:
Some super 8's are pretty decent for that "motel experience". I've found them to be clean and accommodating. Some of them are run down and shabby. The one at the PCH circle in Long Beach is outstanding. Finest pool for miles. Pristine.

Red Roof? -they're all a fucking cess pond.

Well, I wrote the MFG. Told them this silly story of "pilot at the port" and other silly explanations.

Ended it with:

Gentlemen, where is my package?

Seems someone lit a fire, for a barrage of highly comedic information flooded the tracking site.

End result? The damn thing is at my Post Office.

Finally.

And yet, I have another guard on its way. So I guess I have a spare.

When on a long road trip, I actually try and look for a super 8. Out here in CA, "hometown suites" and other are rather expensive, near $300 a night. I don't have the wampum for that as just a sleep-over and hit the road in the morning.

So I try and cap it at $120. Super 8 often delivers. I want clean rooms, updated furnishings, and a laundry service that actually does the work. I expect the sheets to be bleached and the bed to be made up tight and crisp.

If one stays at those low-buck "Patel" joints, You've got to suspect the sheets may not have been changed since the last occupant, the rooms smell like mold because some idiot let the tub run over and they never properly pulled up the carpet and fixed the issue, lamps from 1968, velvet paintings, tube tv.

Horrid. Screw that.

Never. Touch. The Remote.

it's never cleaned. Probably glows like a nuclear reactor under a blacklight. Has more jizz smeared on it than a Kardashian.

We usually book into Best Western. Generally around $100 or so, and they're decent enough.

We rely on the BW as well. Those are the two chains we shoot for.

Air B N B can be a real crapshoot.

*Edit*

Triple-checking the PM string of the customer, we went back n' forth a few times on what color of guard.

I had it right, and I got what I asked for.

..I just didn't expect the pilot to party with the damn thing strung on a cord around his neck, while he drank cold duck out of a hooker's shoe in a sleazy motel down by the airport.

Now that you mentioned the town's namesake a few times..

Let me fill you in on what I have to endure with Skeeter hisself.

Every morning at 0600 to 0630, that crazed old bastard walks his dog and totes a little red wagon behind him. The wagon is for all the "valuable little treasures" he finds in that shithole of a desert along the way.

right in front of my gate and the neighbors' gate.

In his little red, chopped-up set of "Rocky Balboa" sweats with a red watch cap.

Drives all the fucking dogs insane because he's a fucking sketch.

Tries to stick his fingers through the fence and bother our dog..

Wakes everybody up and doesn't give a SteveC fuck about anybody but himself.

I open the door and holler at him, call him a Five-Star Asshole for what he's doing.

Why can't he just walk out into the desert from his house?

Why can't he walk the other way?

Why does he have to stop and fuck with my dog and my fence?

I'm going to start throwing rocks at him.

I wonder how he would like it if I went up to his bedroom window at 0230 and started banging pots and pans.

Clueless son of a bitch..

I'm going to steal his fucking little red shit-wagon and string it up to the light post in front of his house.
