Another Hotel Yarn

Adventures in a Toronto Hotel

So one more blog on the hotel adventures. I was staying at the Hilton when the price went up to $200/night from $85, not a good option. I was leaving for home soon so I just went for price, the Super 8. Well this was not a Hilton.

The room was clean so I can’t complain about that but it was at a truck stop with truckers in and out. There were lots of families there so I wasn’t too concerned about safety. The main problem was that there was no place to work except on the bed. I slept, ate and worked while sitting on my bed. But it was easy to take a nap, I’d just scoot down, nap, then scoot back up to sit and work.

I was working one evening when I heard yelling in the hall. A woman was yelling “get your hands off me”, “I’m going to call the cops and you will be arrested” and on and on. I called the front desk and told the guy that he needed to get up there and reported what I was hearing. He asked me if I’d gone out to see what was going on. I told him that I had not gone into the hall to see what the fighting was about and did not intend to, that was his job.

In a bit I did hear manager talking to whoever was having issues and that was the end of that excitement.
