I am a twenty-something of modest income who is used to sleeping in hostels and cheap motels, who believes that money spent toward a trip, “is better spent on the trip, and not the place where you will only be sleeping.”
Now, that being said, I would like to tell you that the Dutch Inn in Niagara Falls is the most disgusting, decrepit, and contaminated space I have ever set foot in. Regrettably, we arrived well after midnight, and so were forced to spend the night.
Upon entering the room, I went to the bathroom and noticed that on the shower rod hung a pair of used, lace, women’s panties. The bathroom had a new soap cake, so someone had been in there, but the space had not been cleaned. There were pubic hairs in the shower drain, and on the walls. Also on the walls were dried rust colored droplets that resembled dried blood, as well as extensive cobwebs. The knobs to the shower faucet fell off when I turned them.
As for the bedroom: dirty shoeprints lined the walls and furniture. The only picture was cracked and turned upside down. There were cigarette burns on the furniture. That the room reeked and had extensive holes and stain should be a given at this point. The room had several insects in residence. “Oh I’ve dealt with bugs in rooms before, no big deal to me,” you may say. Really? Well how do you feel about BEES IN YOUR ROOM!?
The highpoint were the pillows. On one pillow, which I had to take because I was with my girlfriend, had a large faded black stain on one side. I slept on the other side, but during the night when I would re-adjust I noticed the side of my face that contacted the pillow was slightly damp.
Obviously the next and last night of our trip we changed hotels, but the owners insisted on charging us for the second night regardless. That day at the falls, I often found my thoughts fixated on the room, and how my face felt when nestled into that dirty damp pillow.
It was as if the room had molested me.
