Stayed in one last week out in York, Pennsylvania.

Room was basically clean, and staff was very friendly.  Interestingly the room had no carpeting.
Had Pergo-style wood flooring throughout (even the bathroom!).  I suppose for ease of cleaning.

Weird thing is that there were TWO Motel 6 locations in this same part of town, roughly
a block away from each other.  We went to the first one and were told "oh, no, your reservation
is for the one down the street."


 Huh?

There is a Motel 6 not far from where I am on Banksville Road in Pittsburgh.

I have yet to replace Photobucket as my picture host, so I'll need to describe this to you.
The hotel has two sections.  The main part is facing Banksville Road, a couple of miles
south of the tunnel coming out of Downtown Pittsburgh.  There is a sign and a parking
lot out front.

Behind the hotel is a street known as Old Banksville Road (obviously where traffic went
before the modern four-lane Banksville was constructed).  Across that is another smaller
section of the hotel, linked to the main one by a footbridge.

For reasons I have yet to figure out the larger section of the motel on the main road is being demolished. There is a Motel 6 sign currently sitting in front of a huge pile of rubble.

However....on that sign is a banner that says "Yes, we are open!  Come around back!"

The owners are apparently still trying to operate a Motel 6 out of the remaining back
portion of the motel on Old Banksville, even as most of the hotel lies in a pile of rubble
which guests have to cross in order to get to the remaining structure.

I am absolutely stunned that Motel 6 has not revoked their franchise and confiscated
all of their signage.
