I used to work at the Golden Key for 3 years in the mid-1980s when it was owned by Earl and Beverly Tillman. Back then, the motel had a five star rating, and we and the Tillmans worked to keep it that way. ANY stained towel, chair or carpet was brought to attention of the Tillmans.
Recently, I went back to see if I could work for the current management as a favor, but for a part-time job (I need a part-time job so I can take care of an elderly relative). Well, they said "$4 per room," but after cleaning 3 rooms, I looked around and none of the ownership family members were found. The one woman (wife of owner?) told me that there "was no agreement for $4 - per room payment." I left without being paid the meazly $4 per room and worked for FREE without being paid! The work I did was what was expected when the Golden Key was in it's heyday, when people would come to the Motel because it was such a pleasure and comfort to just stay in. With all the great memories of my time at Golden Key, getting ripped off and not paid a lousy 12 bucks for cleaning 3 rooms has now left a bad taste. What I did notice is that the towels are probably the same as from the mid-1980s.
If anyone else gets to own this fine motel, please consider hiring me for real wages! This poor motel needs REAL staff that know how to take care of the carpets, chairs, replace the aging towels and sheets. The reason for the bad quality is that the current ownership does not want to pay for staff. The beds are not professionally made, the carpets and chairs not cared for. but you will not get much better paying $4 a room -- or in my case --- getting cheated out of pay altogether!
