    I wonder who those folks were giving the ratings? Why would you say a room is 'good' with peeling paint, warm milk and showerheads falling on you?! That's some funny stuff.

    Last seen in Portland Or. via Tacoma,Puyallup, Wa.
    My son ron and I were coming back frome fishing the high Sieras and stopped in Springfield OR to eat and after dark when we left and then decided to stop in Albany for the night we found a motel just off the freeway and behind a gas station that was open. Rates were accepable and we paid and went around to our room. the notel was two stories and there were people leaning on the railings talking to those that were down below but not us . After we got in the room we would hear people comeing and going and the high heals up and down the stairs allnight. WE hadn't missed the acivity as we found our room and so checked to see if the bed was fresh and the place not full of stains and Obvious use earlier that evening.It was so busy we left early to get home for some sleep. It had been along time since I had seen such obvious mass use as compared to MLK in Portland when they were at all the bus stops 'in broad day light. The smell on gas from the station was so strong that we were afraid that there would be some one light up and we'd never get home. It lost alot in the telling.
