    This is crazy-- I stayed at this motel for a night this past summer (not by choice). My best friend and I were going to a concert and it was close to the venue, so she wanted to crash there for the night. It is one of those extended stay type places. The rooms (at least ours) had a refrigerator, stove, a skillet, and some pots and pans. I would imagine a lot of construction workers, etc. stay there. The street that it's on runs parallel to a major highway. You could walk probably 50 feet and be on the highway.

    I am your typical Websleuther who always scopes out her surroundings and I was completely creeped out at the proximity of this motel to the highway. I even thought to myself, "Someone could grab a person and be on the highway in a minute." I will be interested to see if this is random or not.
