Horror at Motel


This story was sent by Christopher.

I was 18 years old at the time working at a motel the motel was pretty rundown and the majority of people who stayed there were locals that were just doing things they weren’t supposed to be doing let’s just say the cops came by multiple times a week I worked as both a front desk person checking in these creeps all hours of the night and as a housekeeper who got to clean off their nasty vomit smelling rooms afterwards one afternoon I was working as a housekeeper in the second building of the motel on the backside furthest from the office I hated working over there because it not only had the most worn down rooms but it was always pretty vacant over there and way too quiet for comfort I began cleaning one of my last rooms and wanted to get done in a hurry because it was getting late I was watching the mirror in the room that I was cleaning when all of a sudden I saw a man in the reflection staring at me he was mid-50s dirty with long greasy hair startled that screamed oh my god I told him he scared me the room I was currently cleaning was vacant so there was no reason why this man should have been in there watching me clean however we just had a meeting on customer satisfaction and my boss was really pressuring us to be more polite and help the guests any way we could sir I asked him cautiously can I give you anything towels the man just stared back at me with a crooked grin and held out his hands to me I thought maybe he was handing me a tip for cleaning his room earlier but when I looked down I saw you was holding a hundred dollar bill alarm started going off in my head no one tips a hundred dollars on a forty dollar a night room the man just smiled and said his name was Terry he said he was staying in the room next door with his wife Cherie and sort of joked about their names rhyming he smelled like car oil and alcohol when I asked him why he was trying to hand me $100 he left deep in his throat and said in my wife were watching you and we just wanted to have fun with you I felt like my heart jumped into my throat um no I can’t do that sir I’m sorry I wanted to run out of the room screaming but he was blocking the door my only exit the man smiled again taking on a softer tone of voice and invited me to come into his room to meet his wife just to talk his friends I nervously told him no again and that I had a lot of work to do for the day I prayed to God he would just go away and eventually he did he grunted and walked off and what I assumed to be the direction of his room I mind began racing there is no wife I thought this man katrien kidnapped me I was 110 pounds at the time and not very strong he could easily overpower me I locked the room from the inside and went directly to the phone to call my manager at the front desk but the phone wasn’t working adrenaline began pumping through my veins and despite what I was always told not to do I was panicking did he cut the line no I thought this is this is a crappy motel it happens all the time but I just have to get out I remembered that I had my cellphone out on my housekeeping card but that was outside the locks door I’d have to open the door to get it I cautiously opened the door to the room that I was cleaning and peered out I didn’t see anyone so I frantically began searching my card for my cell phone I was wasting too much time looking for it so I just decided to run as fast as I could and make a break for the front desk in the office then from behind me I heard the man again but this time he was screaming to someone else she’s running she’s getting away I could hear his shoes slamming against the pavement after me I quickly turned the corner grab my keycard and let myself into a stock room and lock the door within moments I heard the sound of the dirty guy and someone else running outside searching for me I stayed in that stockroom for 30 minutes shaking low until I could no longer hear him searching for me I finally got the courage to run the rest of the way to the front desk when I made it there I collapsed into my boss’s arms and he called the police the man and whoever else was in the room with him peeled out before the cops could arrive and I was beyond shaken up according to the police who ran a search this wasn’t the first time he had done something like this and he was actually wanted for sexual assault gross sexual imposition and in the past was once charged with rape a few weeks later on what happened to be my birthday this guy was caught a few weeks after that I quit I will never again work at another motel you.
