TravelPod Member ReviewsMotel 6 Fargo
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.

... outside the border security area. It was about 45 minutes we had to wait for them to get released.
We then drove on through and went through some road works, where they were digging up the entire road. Not long after that, we received a large stone chip in the Ford's windscreen.
We stopped at Harvey to have some lunch and decided to see if we could get the windscreen fixed as soon as possible to ...

I went to see Marvel's AntMan, because I love the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and I hadn't seen this one yet. I hadn't particularly been dying to see it or anything, but it was another list item ticked. They had really cool, big, electric reclining seats, and you picked where you wanted to sit from a screen at the ticket booth.
I like the way in Galway you just get to pick where you want to sit, but I also hate when you're early and you ...
... the State Complexes in other states. Some are very impressive.) Well, the capitol building in St. Paul is undergoing serious restoration, and from the look of it, it appears they are doing a fabulous job, because the gold finial on the dome and the horses over the main entrance are a bright and sparkling gold, like brand new. Much of the building is covered with staging and tarps. Almost looks like our Capitol in DC. Have you noticed?

... experience under my belt, that this country is truly remarkable in so many ways.
Even though I only traveled through a small fraction of all the states in this country (5 out of 50), I traveled though landscapes that are on the extreme ends of the scale: I traveled through flat, rich farmland of North Dakota; through dry, rolling hills of eastern Montana; through very tall, rocky, lush green forested mountains of western Montana; through the ...
