Fleapit Motel - A Cheap and Dirty Place to Stay
So you're traveling across Neopia and need a cheap place to stay. Well, you
don't feel like the Cockroach Towers and can't afford the Astro-Villa so...
go to the Fleapit Motel! This name may through you off guard at first but it's
not bad at all, well, maybe not TOO bad.
We sent the Lupe, IceBomb_55387, author of Moss Cliff and the Lupe Mysteries,
to report back about the Fleapit Motel! This is what he said:
Check in whenever you please but be careful in the summer. The reason for
this is during the summer around 4:00-4:30 PM NST the sun hits a mound of dung
in the back and it REALLY smells (I mean really!). Otherwise walk right in.
At the head desk sits a grungy-looking Zafara. The first thing he'll ask you
is if you are allergic to any types of fungi. He asks this because every room,
even the nicest, most expensive suite is covered in fungus. The lobby is also
filled of this, along with a green mist that carries a putrid scent. As soon
as you check in, get away from that Zafara; he's an escaped convict from the
Neopian Penitentiary on Roo Island.
As you walk flights upon flights of stairs you'll notice the rooms seems to
get smaller by the step. The reason for that is the carpenter who built the
Fleapit Motel hadn't ever constructed anything before. The walls were once painted
a tangy, spicy orange but age has taken its toll; the walls are covered in grime
with flies buzzing all around.
Finally, room 304, the most expensive suite in the whole motel. As you walk
in you realise quite easily there are no windows in the room. Only a lonely
candle flickers at its solitary post on the termite-eaten table. The slight
hum of mosquitoes penetrate the air. The staff of the Fleapit was kind enough
to provide fly nets for the beds but the nets are useless because holes are
scattered all over it. Hhhmmmppphhh! Your feet scratch across the rusty floor
as you survey the doleful room. Green slime is always dripping from the ceiling
so I decided to head outside, but you can stay if you want!?!
Head down the stairs and take a left at the fish pop sign and you'll be at
the one and a third star restaurant called Garbage a la Mode. It has a smorgasbord
of food donated by the Alien Aisha Vending Machine. Now if you think the AAVM
has very upper crust food, well... think again! They have dry, old, moldy, cracked
and crumpled food too. And that's just what you'll see at the Fleapit Motel.
Also, if you want some celebrity action, once a year the creator of the AAVM,
yes, the Alien Aisha himself, vacations here. Why he chooses the Fleapit Motel,
well, I have no idea!
