My boyfriend and I decided to take a trip to the South Bend/Elkhart area to see a Notre Dame football game. Of course on football weekends, the rates of hotels are ridiculous. Sleep Inn's rate was 139 a night and was not even close to worth it. We cheked in, the girl at the front desk was nice and efficient. The entrance of the hotel looked okay. Things turned bad when we climbed the steps to our room. The carpets looked like they hadn't been vaccuumed in weeks. There were holes in the hallway walls. I decided to overlook this because after our 10 hour drive I was exhausted. Although I should have trusted my gut to turn around and go somewhere else. We entered the room and I went to sit on the bed and saw a stain and a black hair.... So I proceeded to inspect the entire room. There were hairs in the shower, sink area, and both beds. The sheets had stains. Also there was a red substance on the floor beside the toilet. The girl at the front desk insisted that it wasnt blood. I beg to differ.... Disgusted and tired we simply asked to have another room. Upon entering the second room on a different floor we smelled cigarettes and this hotel is supposed to be NON-smoking. With both of us being non-smokers, we were greatly dissappointed. The room was also stain filled, the sheets and the carpet. Exhausted and fed up we returned to the front desk and asked the girl to cancel our entire reseravation. She smugly responded by saying she would cancel the reservation but we weren't going to find another hotel with availability. As if they knew they were the only ones with availibility and they could get away with their uncleanliness. We decided that paying $200 a night at another local hotel was beyond worth it! Stay Away!
