353. Budget Hotel Bit (Audio)

January 15, 2012

Q: I recall a short vignette involving an inexpensive motel, but my searches have come up empty. “Would you like windows with that sir? That will be an extra $7” etc. Does this ring a bell? I have the CD, it’s just a matter of finding the right key word.

A: “The Custom Budget Motel” by John Bendel appeared in the April ’81 (Chaos) issue. (Thanks to Mara for answering this one.)


"The Custom Budget Motel" by John Bendel appeared in the April '81 (Chaos) issue. Windows, furniture, even a doorway into your room costs extra. And you can't just leave, because they rent your car to another customer while you're checking in.
