Let me start off by saying I didn't book this hotel. A friend of mine booked 4 rooms for 8 of us. I took my friend at his word when he told me the hotel was nice. Folks, I've been in the Army and have stayed in some crappy places. One of those places being a tent that sleeps 10 people with no a/c (heat came from a pot belly stove) for 6 months, slept in a sleeping bag on top of a cot, showered in another tent, had to use a port-a-potty and up until this past weekend I thought nothing could be worse than that.......until I stayed here!
So you might ask yourself, what was so bad about it? My answer, EVERYTHING, LITERALLY EVERYTHING. From the front desk clerk to the room everything was BAD. You might also ask yourself, well if it was so bad, why did you stay? Well, there was a big event in town and every hotel was booked up for the weekend so I was stuck.
Alright, on to the bad. I get there and the front desk clerk had no emotion what so ever. He looked like he would rather be anywhere else in the world than there at that moment. I get my keys, grab my bags and he towards my room. I open the door to the hallway that leads to my room and is greeted by this horrendous smell! It was an old musty, smokey smell and the carpet was nasty. I was like ok, maybe the room smells better..........uh nope, same smell and the carpet was just as nasty. There was a pull out couch in the room that had stains all over it. I actually touched this thing to see what the mattress looks like, bad idea. There was a huge urine stain plus several smaller ones on it! The bathroom had mold all around the tub. The stove in the kitchen was nasty. The pillow case was dirty. I went down stairs to get some replacement pillow cases and the soulless attendant reluctantly gave me some. Oh yea, I asked for some replacement towel and this guy told me I HAD TO BRING THE DIRTY TOWELS TO THEM IN ORDER FOR THEM TO REPLACE THEM!!!WTF
So, I finally checked out of this God forsaken place early Sunday morning with my clothes reeking of this horrible smell. When I got home, I immediately showered and washed all my clothes. I placed my bag outside to air out.
People, seriously take head to this warning and AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COST!!!
