It sounds like the latest enthralling roller coaster to be unveiled at Busch Gardens, but sadly this was not the case. We were struggling to find a room for Saturday night in Orlando as our fantastic 10 nights at Drury Inn was at an end - I was nearly weeping into my backpack as the hotel was one of the best I have ever stayed in.
Everywhere half decent was fully booked so we resorted to Motel 6 rated 3 blobs on Trip Advisor for a bargain basement price of $60. We have stayed at Motel 6 before, many years ago when we did a road trip across California and Nevada and the chain motel was okay.
The room appeared perfectly clean on first inspection even though the air was heavy with the smell of mildew and some other unidentifiable pong and the walls were paper thin.
However, it didn't take long for the beasties to appear once the lights went out. I have a pet hate of cockroaches; I just can't abide them. I had a sleepless night after a trip to the bathroom using my trusty head torch which revealed that the room was infested with them. Checking out never felt so good.
