Pick another motel in the area!
Not only did we formally book a king size bed room, but we called the desk clerk (Craig) earlier in the day reconfirming our reservation, and requesting that he hold our room until 10:00 PM, whereupon he expressly promised to do so.
Nevertheless, upon arrival, Craig himsel told us that king size bed rooms are given on a first come first serve basis and all had been given away.
After a courteous and respectful expression of disapproval, he "found" a room with a king size bed and assigned us to it.
Upon entering the sauna like room, it was clear that the air conditioning was not working. Furthermore, the electrical outlet accommodating the alarm clock, was not working and therefore the alarm clock could not be turned on.
In retrospect, when we saw a large commercial fan in the room, we should have known there was a problem, but it was late, we were tired, and naïve.
We telephoned the desk clerk (Craig) who came to our room, fiddled with the air conditioner, and said it now works.
Three minutes later, the air conditioning completely shut down, whereupon we called him again to the room.
He came up a second time, fiddled with it some more, and again declared it operational.
Again, after he left the room, it shut down completely.
Having no choice, we went back down to the front desk whereupon a standard double bed room was assigned to us.
Astonishingly,upon departure, the desk clerk (Craig) admitted that he knew very well that the room had air conditioning problems!
