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.

Made it to Fargo, ND today. It snowed this morning in Wisconsin and we met Emmy's friend for lunch in Minneapolis, MN.
We also stopped at an REI for a few minutes.
Roads in Minnesota this evening were icy in spots and it was very windy, but we went slow and made it here safely.
Sorry, there isn't much else to say since we haven't done any sight seeing yet. Planning on entering Canada tomorrow, so things should become more interesting.
... The campground at the Fairgrounds was NOTHING to "write home about" and the only saving grace were the great hot showers we took Friday morning before heading out toward Grand Forks, ND and the Ramada Inn where a block of rooms had been reserved for the Rehovsky and Ford families. We stayed in the parking lot and "dry" camped. After getting to the hotel, we met up with Nancy Toutges (a former sister-in-law married to Pat's deceased brother Tim) and her husband Paul. Even Bruiser had ...
... Hotel: Fairfield Inn (ND) Helpful hint: The Amusement Park is nicer and cleaner than you'd expect. Cool rides. New aquarium (Sea Life) in the mall. Order aquarium tickets online and save $5 a ticket. Restaurants: Breakfast at Marriott and Olive Garden Beautiful day today in Minnesota, the state of 10,000 lakes. We did some time traveling back to see Paul's brother Mike (and Marne's) old house in Minnesota where Emily was born. ...
... mercury to a sizzling 95 degrees by 9 a.m. The morning ride was easy, through the unique small towns of Enderlin and Kindred; gentle rolling hills past acres of corn, sunflowers, wheat and soybeans.
After lunch, everything changed. I came upon a road sign that was ...
... wasn't coming, and when he finally did, he said the security person got a phone call and Peter had to wait. I had alerted the gate agent we were both there but my husband was stuck in security. There were four people standing at the gate yet, and finally the agent told them they could get on. When Peter came she said that they could only board one of us.
Felt ballistic. Remained calm. I informed her that we had waited four days to get on this flight, and ...
