24: Park Meadows Lodge - review | Horrible motel. The owner was getting drunk when I arrived, half gallon of Wild Turkey behind the plywood desk and about 15 people in the broken down lobby just starting a kegger party with very loud music. a kegger thrown by the owner himself. Didn't think it would be too bad per other reviews, but WOW was I wrong. Would've gone somewhere else if I could have found one, but my family with three young daughters arrived too late and were too tired (The owner even wanted to know the ages of my young daughters to have them come on down to the party if they were 18+ Tried to get as far away as possible from the party in the lobby but the music thumped and the party got bigger and louder. Last I looked at my watch it was 2:40 am and still going - still keeping me up...This in not a motel..more of a transient fraternity house. Stay away.
