"A good location for Kelso"
The motels location is good for places to eat and access around Kelso. No complaints on anything. Everything was as you would expect your stay to be, except for one thing,,,,,,,,,,our car was broken into and cleaned out while in the parking lot.
Unfortunately this is an all to common event today, BUT what got to me more than a little, was that sitting on the check in desk was a large video monitor of all the security cameras about the motels area. There must of been about 20 camera's on the screen. Anx naturally nobody monitored them, which I could understand. But when I was gathering the information for the police report, I asked if the police could have a copy of the surveillance camera footage between 8pm and midnight. I then noticed that though it was 1am, the camera monitor said it was 11:35pm. I was told the system time had not been adjusted for sometime. I was also told later that the surveillance cameras are not recorded, as thefts rarely happened,(??) In this case, the thieves must of spent a considerable amount of time jimmying the car open, and thoroughly going through it. Taking about $4,000 worth of my belongings, including one gun that was fairly well hidden.
Sympathy was offered by the staff, but they would have to check with management concerning the camera recordings. That afternoon, they seemed as surprised as I, that the camera footage was not recorded. I never was contacted by any of the motel management concerning the theft.
