Happy T13! :) Great list idea!

Crimson Wife

Cute list! Thanks for the laugh :-)

Gattina

Ha, ha, that's quite a funny description and unfortunately sometimes also true !

Robin from Israel

That first one is hysterical. Attacking toilets, what a visual!

Happy TT.

EuroPosh

wow, you really hate that motel, don't you?

mar

LOL, terrific list of very true things! Hope you don't have to spend the night at a motel very often...
happy tt!

PJ

Great list, I've never actually stayed in a motel (hotels yes, motels no), but I might have to someday just for the experience.

CHECK OUT!!
What a bloody nightmare.
I was in the hotel business for years and I could add a few horror stories to your list. (Hmmm... thinking of next week's TT)
I don't want to scare you, but those bedspreads aren't even washed that often. Ewww. First thing I do in any hotel or motel is ditch the spread.

The saving grace is if it has a good lobby with a bar (see my last week's TT). My husband and I actually succumbed to the lure of the ubiquitous South of the Border signs on a trip from New York to Florida. In the middle of the night, the picture over the bed fell off the wall and onto our heads!

Last weekend, I had the serendipitous experience of having a room not only close to the ice maker, but close enough to the concierge lounge that I could put flip flops and a t-shirt on over my PJ bottoms and get the coffee that THEY make which is far superior to the stuff I would make in the room and put the thimble-ful of cream they give you in. OK...don't parse that sentence....I'm still on my first cup of coffee.

Babe

Way too true! lol Great list. Thanks. :-)

Christine d'Abo

The only thing worse than getting a room far away from the ice machine is getting the room NEXT to it.

The noise...all night long!

Titania

I really got a chuckle out of your Thursday13 because it is so true!!! You were spot on with everything. I have issues with not only the ice machine being too far away but being broke! Grrrrr. :o)

Tink

LOL, interesting list! I don't have experience with motel rooms, but the list doesn't make it very attractive to try either. :-)
Thanks for visiting my TT!

Rowena

LOL, this was a funny list. Especially the last one! =) Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great weekend!

Rowena

Yes, I used to work at Wal Mart and well, I made work fun for myself so it wasn't so bad for me and I'm a friendly person so I didn't have too many bad customers, I was actually a customer favorite. I don't mean to toot my own horn or anything..LOL.

But yeah, thanks and I promise that I will not come up with a lame Thursday Thirteen, or atleast I'll try...I won't have a brain freeze for quite awhile I'd guess since I've got a few weeks thought up already.

e-Mom

Very Funny! I could relate to most of these. The "boutique" hotel we stayed in at a major city's waterfront was sorely in need of repair--and had the stain on the ceiling. We were glad we had booked through one of those online discount services, and hadn't paid full price. Then again, I guess you get what you pay for. :~) Happy T-13! Blessings, e-Mom
