We had just seen the Caverns and wanted to stay nearby to drive the Shenandoah Drive the next day. All of the nearby hotels were booked, but the Motel West had their apartment still available so we jumped on it. Ugh...The carpet was so filthy our socks turned black. The couch in the living room had big rips and black stains on it; we watched tv (the five clear channels we could get) standing up. We weren't going to use the kitchen or dining room, but both were outdated and still had past guests' garbage in them. The entire "suite" had not been updated in 40 years. The bathtub and toilet had massive rust stains; we ended up being too grossed out to shower. There wasn't even a clock/radio anywhere in the apartment. But the kicker was that the screen door didn't lock; neither did the deadbolt on the main door. We had to rely on the flimsy doorknob lock. And we faced the wooded area, not the main road. We kept lights on so it would appear we were awake. And we paid $165 (including tax) for this! It would have been better to drive all night than to stay at this place.
