At the 3 in the morning and in need of some rest, my wife & I decided to lay our heads at this motel. It's over priced for the quality though our room was moderately clean.
Our real surprise came in the morning when the cleaning staff pounded on our door at 11:05am telling us it was checkout time. Checkout time is 11am, admittedly, and we had overslept. Most places will give you a bit of grace in checking out. But we hopped to it and showered. Standing in nothing but my towel, at 11:15am the cleaning staff pounded aggressively on the door and shouted "you have to leave." The two maids then unlocked the door and opened it. I told them we were just about ready and pushed back on the door. We tussled with the door for a moment as they screamed at me that "checkout was 11am -- you have to leave NOW." I managed to get the door closed.
When we departed the room, the two cleaning ladies were just finishing berating another couple to hit the road (they has also checked in at 3am). They gave us an interesting combo of the evil eye/staredown/you-just-killed-my-cat looks. Wow -- and we'd only run over checkout by 20 minutes!
I understand that these places need to turnaround rooms promptly but I was shocked that this motel leaves it's policy policing to it's aggressive cleaning staff who think nothing of unlocking guests' doors to scream at them.
The manager explained their behavior by saying one of them had an appointment.
Don't stay here.
