I recently stayed at the Pickwick *M*otel during the Padre season, and it was about $95/night and it was the dumpiest, crappiest, place EVER. Seriously, the bed was like a board, the windows didn't close all the way, the carpet was DIRTY, there was no tv remote, it was TOTALLY stark with nothing but a TV and a BED, a fan that didn't work, cockroaches, DIRTY DIRTY DIRTY bathroom, ripped shower curtains, NO SOAP AND NO SHAMPOO (they later said "oh, you have to ask"), parking is $25/night in a crappy small parking garage, the people that work there are VERY VERY rude...the manager is rude. I asked if he had a AAA discount (because most motels/hotels do offer AAA discounts) and he got all peeved that I asked him. The area immediately surrounding the motel is very ghetto and the people who stay there druggies and prostitutes. No joke... it was very scary. WORST motel experience I've ever had... it was one hundred times worse than the worst youth hostil you've ever been to. Please, stay away from the Pickwick!
