Warning: Comfort Inns May Be Poorly Built

Romantic adventure leaves motel all wet

By Kelly Hawes
The Daily News

Published June 18, 2006
GALVESTOn — A man and a woman were in jail Saturday on charges that their romantic adventure flooded several rooms at an island motel.

According to a police report, officers were called to the Comfort Inn in the 100 block of Seawall Boulevard just before 11 p.m. Friday. Officers said the hotel’s sprinkler system had broken, flooding at least eight rooms and causing an estimated $15,000 in damage.

Police said a search of the room with the broken pipe turned up drug paraphernalia and a number of sex toys.

“At first, they both denied knowing anything about the damage, but they couldn’t get around the fact that their room was filled with sex toys,” said Bret Griffin, an assistant district attorney.

Griffin said the couple eventually admitted tying a rope around the man’s neck and attaching it to the sprinkler system.

“They thought the pipe would support the man’s weight,” Griffin said. “That proved to be wrong.”

The 45-year-old Arcadia man was held on $3,500 bond Saturday afternoon on charges of criminal mischief and possession of marijuana. His companion, a 35-year-old Santa Fe woman, was held on $2,000 bond on a charge of criminal mischief.

Oh shoot, I'm staying at the one in Nuremberg in three days because I have to fly out at 6:30 a.m.. And it's the day after the end of the World Cup there so the partiers alone just might tear the place down around me.

Don't sleep under the sprinkler head. :)

And don't try almost killing yourself by hanging from the sprinkler system.

The ones that are really poorly built are the Motel 6s and Motel 8s. They creak every time someone above you walks across the floor. I swear, its like living inside an erector set.

They give you a sleeping bag and key to the outhouse.

Well, I wonder if anyone here has had the Ibis "Hotel" experience. I did it once when I was on a tour with the German-American club. Don't ever do it if you need the room for anything other than to sleep and shower in (I didn't). The whole thing is pre-fab and the rooms are literally stacked pre-fab units. Good buffet breakfast though (this is common in Germany where they have not, thank God, discovered the continental breakfast). Still not as bad as its equivalent in Japan, I guess, which gives you about as much room as a train compartment. and I mean of the European sort.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

You'll notice that they all have televisions.

Actually the Ibis is not as bad as anything you depicted (apparently many Japanese sleep all week in such places to avoid the many-hours commute home), but I also understand that in Japan you can get hard booze from vending machines. Just help me make it through the night.

I doubt that even the Prsidential Suite in the Waldorf Astoria provides those. High theft items, you know.
