For the century, we booked a room at a place recommended by the ride, America’s Best Value Inn, in Cambridge, Maryland.
While some people have nothing but small rooms to complain about, the size of our room was OK, it was some other small details that bothered us. Like the small hole in the wall.
All in all, cleanliness seems to be one of the smallest issues on the agenda at the ABVI. And trust me when I say that you’re glad I didn’t take pictures of the cigarette burns on the bathtub, and that I couldn’t include the smell that pervaded the room in this post.
After we’d been in it for 10 seconds, I said that it’s the kind of room where you always want to wear your shoes. Mama said it’s the kind of room where you wish you brought your own sheets.
I’m just glad that we didn’t bring Grammy and 3B along, as we had considered, to stay in the room while we rode our century. At any rate, if you’re looking for a place to stay, you might want to pass up the next ABVI that you see. According to their own brochure, they rate this property a 4 (out of 5) as a property that is well above their average. I shudder to think what the properties that rate as a 1 look like.
