Motel offers free rooms. But maybe few takers?


The Idle-A-While Motel in Twisp, Washington is cute as can be with its white, yellow-framed cottages. It advertises all the usual motel creature comforts and then some. “We invite you to relax in the hot tub, enjoy a sauna, play a game of tennis or barbeque in the picnic area,” its brochure explains.

It also advertises a special deal — a free room for two! Sound good?

Here’s the scoop, word-for-word from the motel’s literature. “For that special person over age 80, accompanied by their parent, your room is on the house.”

In the 28 years since the offer was first made, nobody has taken it up. Big surprise, huh?
