Have you been driving for days? Have you seen the sun rise and set 3 times from your car? Do you see a purple hippo wearing sunglasses on the left side of the highway, or are you hallucinating? Once you reach this level, it’s time pull over into a motel and rest. Here are some tips on how to choose a decent motel.
How to Choose the Right Motel Tip 1: Check the Room Before Booking
Before booking the room for the night, ask the receptionist if you can take a quick look at an available room. There are some parts of the room you should pay attention to. For example, rub one of the towels on your face. If the towel feels like sandpaper, leave. If you see hair that is still attached to the towel due to a balding, sad and divorced father from the previous week, leave.
How to Choose the Right Motel Tip 2: Screen the Bed for Bed Bugs
Bugs like beds just as much as we do. The most important aspect of a motel room is the bed. One cannot sleep comfortably while knowing that the cleanliness of their bed has been compromised. Check for bed bugs by looking for small black spots or bloodstains. The black spots may look like mold or ground pepper. The bloodstains may be from the bugs or from people.
How to Choose the Right Motel Tip 3: Look Directly Into the Eyes of the Clerk
Once you have cleared the bedroom of any deficiencies, the last step to choosing your motel is to look directly into the eyes of the receptionist or clerk. What you are looking for is an idea of whether the person is stable. It is possible that you will be the only person staying in the motel. Don’t forget that the clerk has access to all of the rooms.
Congratulations! You now know the three most important steps to choosing a motel. Rest easy.
