I stayed at an Indian owned Americinn Motel in Spencer Iowa. There was no shampoo so I went to the front desk and was told that it would cost me $1.10 for the little bottle of shampoo everyone else gives away free.
My wife and I were at another (Marriott) facility and talking to the cleaning lady. She told us she had quit at an Indian owned facility because the cleaning crew was instructed that unless they were dirIty, the sheets were only to be changed once a week, no matter how many guests had used the room.
I have also observed an Indian owner just adding more grounds to the coffee pot when the pot went empty.
If you walk into the lobby and see prices on everything for the newspaper to the local area maps, just keep walking.

When I go duck hunting I usually pick a motel that is close to a restaurant that has a buffet. I get a weekly rate and don't like to pay more than $ 40.00 per night. They must allow dogs. So my motel experiences have been interesting. Once in Mississippi I had a decent room but the toliet didn't flush, but I could go to the next room over (the AC/heater didn't work in that one) to use the jon. The Paki owner gave me 2 keys. Another time. again in Mississippi, the place was clean enough but when it rained the light fixture in the bathroom filled up with water, leaking thru the roof. The air conditioner/heater made a ton of racket until I mentioned it to the guy at the desk, he came over with a baseball bat and whacked the fan housing a couple of times and that fixed the problem.
We stayed in an Econo Lodge in Eagles Nest, N.M last week. Was very clean, couple that ran it were nice, breakfast the next morning was enjoyable and good. This was one of the better lodges we have stayed at. Have also stayed at better named lodges that were so dirty you wondered what you would take home with you.
I am checking right now the 10 worst Hotels in The US. normally stay in Marriots, but when I have to go to DC I stay at the Days Inn at Connecticut, it is close to the International Court. You get what you pay for and considering what I pay, this Days Inn gives me the moneys worth.
