Aye...But, most of the small-time motels along the trail are not chain motels
and are owned/operated by a family who usually lives in one of the rooms, or a
basement. And, the people on duty ARE reflective of the owner. As far as I am
concerned, they ARE the owner. They have been hired by the owner to represent
the owner. They are the person I'm handing my money to. If they want that
money...they should treat me/us like it.

It was October. It was raining. It was cold. It was dark. The Yankees were in
the world series. I called and was told one thing. I was treated poorly. That's
how I remember the Pine Grove Motel.
