Another quick note.
I stayed in a couple hotels on my trip including the Travelodge in Ottawa, KS. The place is obviously an older hotel that has seen better days.The room was small, the shower was dirty and the a/c control panel was so worn you could barely see the settings.
My biggest concern, however, was the ice machine:
A missing panel, exposed wiring...this is an accident waiting to happen! I wasn't sure about staying here again due to the run down conditions and the poor quality service, but this makes me want to run away very quickly. I think it's only a matter of time before someone is hurt or there is an electrical fire.
