I've been to quite a few Motel 6's but this is one had more than the usual share of problems. There were at least three people in the office but only one of them seemed to be doing any work. I eventually got checked in. When I went to my room I couldn't get in. I went to the front desk and they gave me another key. That one didn't work either. When I went back a second time I was told by another guest that you have to lift the handle up to get the door to open. Even with three or more people behind the desk and three opportunities to tell me this I was told by a guest, not an employee.
After getting a working door key I wasn't too surprised when it stopped working the next day. I went to the front desk and they tried to tell me it was because I kept it near my credit cards. I'd be willing to bet it was because the key was only programmed for one day.
Then I tried to used the Internet key I was given; it wouldn't work. I went to the desk to get another one. Someone came with me to make sure I got it working. It did work but then he told me it would be really fast so I ran a speed test; it was around 400kbps, which isn't very fast. He took me to another room where he thought the signal would be better. It was but the speed was still mediocre. I used the Internet for a while and then the password expired. I had to go to the desk and get another one. At times the speed of the Internet drops to the point I can't even load the speed test web site. The next day the Internet was totally unusable. I needed to look at a map and I couldn't get google maps to load.
The water pressure is terrible and when this is combined with the low-flow faucet heads the result is annoying. Filling a cup of water takes over 20 seconds. The room does not have any carpet, which in some ways I like but I think it contributes to the fact that it's noisy. There is one towel in the bathroom. The others aren't just outside the bathroom door by the sink. no, they're on the opposite wall about seven feet from the bathroom door.

... ND, Alexandria, MN, Pickerel Lake, MN, Grand Island, NE and Mt. Juliet, TN. We drove from Grand Forks, ND toward a campground in Menomonie, WI while listening to the Vikings football game on the radio and keeping up with the Titan's score on our phones. Yea, both teams won! Great start to the season. We finally made it to the campground and hooked up about 7:00PM -- 388 miles! What was that someone said when we started that they didn't want to drive more than 300 miles on any ...
... brother lived first in MN. We ate on the beach and the kids splashed around a bit. Now we are on our way to Fargo, North Dakota. Ya know. We just stopped for a bathroom run next to a neat picture spot with a big buffalo, a teepee and a little log cabinny thing. Ended up being the site of one of the continental divides where, basically, the water on the continent flows one way to one body of water and the other way to another body of ...

So the agent gave us one boarding pass to Seoul and said that was as far as she could get us. I said - again in calm voice - that's quite interesting, because we are also flying Korean Airlines to Hong Kong. More minutes of computer checking and out came boarding passes to Hong Kong. But we are going to HCM...but we can't write a boarding pass for Vietnam Airlines. You will have to go to the transit desk in Hong Kong and get your Vietnam ...
I got up and walked around looking for Baby but didn't have any luck. We went to the Fargo animal shelter and looked at their cats and also called west Fargo and Moorehead animal shelters to give her description and our contact info.
We visited the Hjemkomst museum which was really interesting. The name means homecoming and refers to the building of a Viking ship by a local teacher (Bob Asp). He had ...
... in Wells Fargo, originally a stage coach company, and now a big bank. You should also know that Fargo is the biggest city in North Dakota at just over 100k residents. The city itself is pretty small, and many active trains run through the city. We were there for about an hour and saw at least 4 trains go by.
Off to Sioux City, ...
