Really Bad Motel
The place should have been called the Bates Motel!
Now, granted, this was at the end of Spring Break last year...six months after the hurricane hit Galveston. The motel was right on Seawall Blvd, and so probably sustained a lot of damage...but still...
This does not look like a recent repair, to me. It just looks like a bad one.
I'll be the first to admit that my bathroom is not necessarily a candidate for House Beautiful, but it looks better than this!
This corner is awful...
Yes, Dearly Beloved, that is a live cockroach...but not for long. Several of its brethren met their doom that night.
I would recommend that, if you choose to go to this motel, you insist on a tour of your room before plunking down your plastic. I was there with Aidan, and he was worn out with frolicking in the surf, so we stayed.
I did not sleep well.
The next morning, I buttonholed the proprietor and took him on a tour. What you see here does not include the mildew in the bathtub, the broken mirror or the rotted and shredding curtains.
I told him I was going to write this, but I got distracted. If you are going to Galveston for Spring Break this year, beware of the Economy Inn!
