I left to grab lunch, gas up, etc. I came back and the door was still propped open. The same guy followed me into my room, asking that I bear with them. I only stayed because I had nowhere else to go. I was exasperated, but tried to get him to leave me alone. He kept asking if I was tired and if I wanted to sleep. I said I did, but he didn't consider that his cue to leave, although he did after a few minutes. I still had to keep the door propped open for 2-3 hours. I chose to close it when the paint didn't feel too tacky anymore. Nobody came to tell me I could shut it.
This motel's located in a small town, so maybe they don't understand the security issue. It felt like they snuck in as soon as I left. There had clearly been people IN my room moving things around and using the bathroom, although nobody thought to make the bed or replace the towels.
Should I just expect this kind of annoyance from a cheap motel, or did they cross a line?
