had to book a hotel at the last minute for a family reunion that kept changing dates. reserved the room by phone the day before. the lady on the phone was barely understandable, had to have her keep repeating herself because of her accent.
got to the hotel the next day and walked in the office. we (girlfriend and i) were hit immediately with the smell of B.O. and what smelled like curry chicken. a minute or so later a pregnant indian women came out of the back room. payed and got our key. she wasnt any easier to understand in person.
went to the room, which was on the other side of the complex. she put us next to a group of wanna be bikers from oregon and another couple. why? there wasnt anyone else there. anyways, went in the room, smelled musty like the room had never been opened up, stale air. room was not bigger than 12x12 and they somehow shoved a queen size bed (barely walk around it to the bathroom) in the center with a small table, a single chair, dresser, and a night stand. im not sure how they got it all in there. it was very cramped. the bathroom had "as advertised" a worthless hair drier hung on the wall that looked like it was out of the 70's. shower was small, like small small. like so small, that an average person wouldnt be able to move once inside. anyone bigger than about 250lbs... good luck, might try the sink.. because you might not fit in the shower. shower curtain was disgusting! whole thing had mold growing on it.. and the shower curtain rod was held up on one side by T.P.... how, i have no idea, i didnt touch it. someone told me they did a "remodel" after i had left, i noticed they painted the tile... which was peeling. wooo! lets paint some tile and call it a remodel! anyways, flat screen tv was the only way they could get a tv in there, otherwise it wouldnt fit. i was amazed they spent money on the tvs and satellite but looks like they didnt clean anything. the more i think about it, the more im grossed out by the whole experience. heaters are from the 60's, at first i didnt think they worked. it was like a kid with a straw blowing through the vent at you. lol. turned on the heat, about an hour later, it was still freezing and somehow fell asleep. 3 hours later i woke up in a fiery inferno of heat. not sure how it went from no heat to inferno but at least it was hot! lol. didnt really get any sleep after that, opened up all windows and door... no wind... therefore it was still hot. lol. the heat thing was totally my doing, a little ridiculous but comical none the less. btw, bed was like a brick. i think the floor was softer but there wasnt any space to lay on it. lol. i guess my bed got some extensive use.. there was 2x4s that i noticed holding the middle up upon departing the next morning.
departing. someone said in another review that there was an unprofessional homeless man at the counter. i saw him! he was awkardly standing there while i think his daughter was the running the desk (same girl that i had already dealt with). there was a chinese lady in there trying to get a room for herself and family when i went to drop the key... she was having some difficulties with the language barrier. i got to the counter and said "checking out". i got the reponse from the girl, "ok.... bye". thats it. no "have a good day", no "how was everything?".. nothing. glad i didnt waste my time with the complementary breakfast... not impressed.
