My family and I were very excited to get out of the city for a few days. We booked our stay at hitching post because of the price and the kitchen. Upon arrival I noticed that the hotel was very dated which wouldnt be a problem if it was clean. I always bring my own bedding and when I tried to change the pillow cases I noticed that the pillows had large brown stains, very gross. All the bedding went into the closest and we slept without pillows. I tried cleaning everything but lysol can only do so much. 20 min after I showered my two daughters I noticed my daughters FEET WERE BLACK from walking on the floor. The drawers and cabinets were dirty and in need of TLC. There were noticeable stains on chair cushion and for a party of 5 there was only two kitchen table chairs and one was literallly broke in half. Everything that needed repair wasn't anything the housekeepers could of fixed. So no this is not a housekeeping problem. This is a management problem. You should be albe to walk around your hotel without your feet turning black. This hotel was so dirty my 4 year old was walking around with a lysol wipe trying to make it better. If a 4 year old notices then it is really bad. The carpet had stains and fridge handle was broke.. I could go on forever about the cleanliness of this hotel. To sum it up I would never stay here again. If your familiar with modesto, it was a hotel that belonged on 9th street.
