Selinda Daughtry, 41, and Brenda Mixon, 52, were robbed at the Ashley Oaks Motel just before 2 a.m. Wednesday, said Lt. Aaron Kirk, with the Valdosta Police Department.
Police say the women were watching TV, when a masked gunman busted down their motel room door.
Daughtry and Mixon were forced into the bathroom before the suspect took off with a purse, keys and cell phone.
"You don't know what's gonna happen around here," said Spencer Richardson, a motel guest at the Ashley Oaks Motel. "Sometimes I come in late at night from work and I don't know what to expect when I'm coming in home at night."
VPD says neither woman was hurt and they have no suspects in custody yet.
