Maybe it's not lavish. Maybe the area isn't great. Maybe the other guests are questionable. Yes, there are many factors an establishment, whether because of finances or the character of its clientele, cannot control and must merely attempt to manage, but what EVERY business, especially in the hotel/motel industry, can control is customer service. Yes, I can understand the fatigue that must come from being in an area that attracts uncivil, unclean, or even criminal behavior on your grounds, but what that DOES NOT give you permission to do is treat guests who have exhibited none of this behavior as if they're a problem waiting to happen. The lady at the desk was rude, aggressive, and didn't even attempt to mask her judgemental stares because I'm a young black man. I'm a friendly person. I greeted her upon arrival and her frown and steely stare oozed of "Oh God, another one." The only thing managed to say to me was "NO VISITORS", not once, but twice. No words even as she gave me the key. If I were the staff of a hotel in a bad neighborhood with smelly rooms, unclean bedding, and stained towels that I don't have the means (or care) to do anything about, I'd AT LEAST work on managing to smile and say hello to new guests instead of regarding them as another burden from check-in to check-out.
