DENVER, COLORADO -- I would like to share with you all the most horrifying experience of my life in a Motel. I was in Denver, Colorado visiting some friends. At the time I was not making that much money and had to settle with a less than ideal hotel situation. Because I was staying up there for a week it was much cheaper to rent a room from a place that rented by the week rather than fork over hundreds of dollars to a traditional hotel chain. This is how I ended up at the Big Bunny. The first night I arrived it was late and I was tired so I went right to bed.
The next morning I got up early to do some sightseeing and enjoying visiting my friends. That night when I returned I smelled something terrible that hadn't been there the day before. After searching through the mini fridge, all the cupboards, drawers and bathroom, I thought that the smell must be coming from the dumpster outside. The next morning the smell was even worse and it seemed to be coming out of the bed. So I got down on my hands and knees and found rotting food under the bed.
I was mortified, wondering if there was anymore. I flipped the mattress and realized that I had not only been sleeping on top of rotting food, but I also was sleeping on needles and some sort of pipe. I immediately called my friend who brought her camera to document pictures and then we brought management in. The manager started screaming at me for flipping over the mattress, and proceed to call the cops on me. When the police arrived they did nothing, they simply said it was her word against mine, that those things weren't mine and I was lucky they weren't arresting me for possession of drug paraphernalia.
I was mortified not only by the manager but also the police. I learned later that the manager was running a prostitution ring out of the motel, and that many people had filed complaints about both the manager and the police officers that were involved. My advice for anyone visiting Denver is to spend the extra money for a good hotel and don't try to mess around with the cheap ones.
