Riverside Motel – near Hadashville, MB

I was road-weary. I was tired. The many deer on the highway in the darkness of night were starting to get to me. I needed to get off the road and snooze until daylight. Better to to sleep for a bit than to keep on going and chance a hit.

Oh, look, a motel. How fortunate for some.

Oh, look. A motel. What good fortune.

I had been passing by this place for decades but I never had the opportunity or a reason to stop since it was in the middle of nowhere–literally. I walked in to the lobby and a troll asked me for my name and phone number, which it wrote down on a piece of paper. I might have taken that as a clue, but in my advanced state of decomposition I let it slide. Now that I think about it, I should have been instantly reminded of my stay at a dive in Sweetwater, Texas, when I had to get off the road to avoid rain, sleet, hail, and wind. I got eaten alive by bedbugs and lived to tell about it, but I digress.

There was no key forthcoming, but I did get an admonition to leave the door unlocked when I departed in the morning. No problem. I’ve probably stayed in worse places, I thought to myself. (See here.)

I pulled up to the front of the room and eyed the door. It looked to have been kicked in a time or two.

Yup, for sure.

Inside, there were more mosquitoes than you can find over road kill, but I was tired. I swatted away as many as I could while I pulled the sheets back and inspected the bed with a flashlight.

Nope, I’m not sleeping there.

Both the chairs in the room were cloth. I wouldn’t be sleeping on either of them.

I figured I could at least get a wash before heading back out on the road, but I didn’t think that was a very good idea after inspecting the waterworks. Instead I used my stash of bottled water to brush my teeth and rinse my face.

I was back on the road shortly thereafter, where I caught a few winks at a weigh station farther east on the border.

Yes, I left the door unlocked when I pulled out.

  4. Stayed at this place several times and found it a great place for the right price, during my travels I had to stay at motels quite often, and didn’t want to spen $100 or more to put my head down….anytime I was around I found a warm welcome at the riverside, and if hungry at midnight some food would be available promptly!!
    Nancy keep up your great work!!

  5. I’m so sorry you had a bad experience.

    Its true that we have very hard well water, which as you can imagine is tough on plumbing and on the linens which are clean and serviceable .
    We are bedbug free, by the way. I check.

    As for the door, most people are glad not to have to bother about a key ,and are too tired to fill out a lengthy registration form. I must have decided that you looked tired and stressed from dodging deer, and decided to forgo the 3rd degree. I am guessing it was late at night.

    I’m awfully sorry about the mosquitoes. I would certainly have sprayed the room had I known.

    Yours truly,
    the Troll
