Has a Chinese restaurant attached by any chance?I have stayed at a cheap motel and found out the next morning that there was a working girl next door to me. I didn't get a good nights sleep as there was opening a closing of the front door all night and then cars coming and going as well.
The owner of the place apologised and it did bring a different crowd and many people coming and going all night.(no pun intended)
I think there has problems before with this person or being a mining town maybe there has been an incident after the person has left and there is a guy turning up knocking on some guys door ver drunk demanding something that wasn't going to happen I have stayed at the motel more times than I can remember and know the owners quite well.
