"The hotel clerk wouldn't let me check in 15 minutes early, even though I'd been on the road for 15 hours. There was trash on the room floor. I went back to the front desk and complained, and we were given another room. The key didn't work, so I returned to the front desk and was given yet another room. When I woke up in the morning, I noticed that the bedsheets had dirty fingerprints on them. When I asked for fresh sheets, a man handed me some and I had to make the bed myself.2016-04-11"
