It takes a lot to really gross me out and write this strong of a review, but this places deserves it. When I arrived, I thought it was going to be a nice stay. The valets were friendly and I checked right into my room. That is where it all went downhill....
The room size was alright. The stains covered much of the carpeting though. Some of the stains were more visible that others, but there were plenty of them. I was also surprised how hard it was to find a power outlet. I had to use the outlet in the bathroom sink area because I couldn't find another open one. With the days of digital devices, I would put having accessible power outlets toward the top of the list. While plugging my phone into the outlet, I noticed what appeared to be something smeared around the sink. My best guess is that it was a lot of excess clear silicone caulk that was just smeared around the sink and left there. (at least that is what I hope it was...) I tried to look at the map/brochure they had in the room, but after I realized how it was slimy and gross, I decided I could find the information on my phone.
I looked into the bathroom and noticed I would be fortunate enough to shower with many other people's hairs. I can deal with a stray hair or two, but this shower offered them in all shapes and sizes. It was also very awkward trying to step around the toilet and into the tub. They really didn't plan the layout very well.
After my "amazing" shower, I decided it was best just to go to bed. I didn't look too closely at the sheets because I just wanted to sleep. When I awoke, I noticed the comforter was actually just covered by a sheet, not a sealed piece. I then noticed there was dried blood and other stains all over the white comforter. I checked myself and my nose to make sure I hadn't been bleeding. Sure enough, I got to sleep in someone else's dried bloody, soiled sheets. I can't tell you how thrilled I was with this revelation.
I had enough with the room at that point and just had to get out of it. I packed up all my stuff and left. I decided after a little while to call the hotel and at least tell them about the issue so the next guest didn't have to deal with it. I explained the bloodied, stained comforter and how it desperately needed cleaning. The response was, "OK." There was not even an apology for the experience. I wasn't asking much, just for the room to be cleaned for the next person. It was truly shocking the lack of attention that was paid to it.
I would highly recommend you do not visit this hotel unless filth is your thing. If you are into that, then by all means stay here. I hope this reviews saves another from the same experience.
