Upon arrival, we were greeted by a lovely clerk. She registered us and sent us off to our room with 2 beds for 4 adults.. When we opened the door, we were hit with an overwhelming paint smell! They had just painted and had not replaced the furniture or vacuumed the room. Well, that can happen to any property and hey, at least they are painting, right!
So, we got another key to another room. It is non - smoking but open the door and it totally smelled like a wet ash tray!! We get a third key and open the door, it's a king with a sleeper couch. It doesn't smell and it is late at night and we are tired, so we take the room.
Upon further inspection, this room had not been vacuumed either. The fairly new paint job was sloppy at best. The carpet was filthy. The bathroom wasn't too swift either.
There was no extra bedding for the sleeper couch, so my husband went to the front desk to ask for sheets and a blanket. He was told that all the extra blankets were in the dryer and as soon as they were dry, they'd call our room to come and get it. Instead of calling, they delivered the blanket (which was nice) but when I went to put it on our bed, I discovered that it had at least 20 cigarette burn holes in it! It was gross!
When the blanket was delivered by a woman other than the one that had checked us in, my husband asked for an extra set of towels. She let out a disgusted sigh and huffed off to get them. It appeared we were really putting her out!
On this particular vacation, we had stayed in 9 hotels (or motels) prior to this night and had never felt compelled to buy a bottle of Lysol and spray the room down and keep our shoes on until laying in the bed. But this time we definitely did both!
As uncomfortable as I was in this room, I must give the devil his due, the sleeper couch was definitely the must comfortable on we'd ever slept on!
I would love to know what Choice Hotels is thinking, putting their name on this property.
