We booked on-line for our very first trip to a NASCAR race. There were three of us. My son, son in-law and myself. The location of the Motel was OK. Easy to find, easy to get around. The problems were that they advertised "newly remodeled" & "free continental breakfast". There was nothing about the place that suggested "newly remodeled", only if you count the fact that our door jamb latch plate had been replaced because someone had kicked the door in. To get the door to latch, you had to pull up "hard" on the knob. The electronic locks were very hard to get to work. There was a pungent smell in the main lobby. The rooms were bad. They appeared to be somewhat clean, but the bedspreads had rips and tears and holes in them. There was very little water pressure in the sink. The shower had better water pressure but the enclosure was in bad need of replacement. It was stained and had a bar missing from it that allowed water to run in behind the enclosure. Certainly this would have to grow mold and mildew and eventually rot the framework in the walls. The toilet was loose to the point that it lifted up when leaning from side to side. It felt as if the toilet was not bolted down to the floor. The first time it was used, my son in-law almost fell off into the tub enclosure. We are not sure how it did not leak being so loose. The towels were full of lint or perhaps disintegrating as we were using them. They left fibers all over your body when used. We never had any tissues in the tissue holder throughout the entire stay. There were no instructions on how to use the television with the satellite dish. The clock/radio did not work properly. It was extremely hard to dial in a station and set the volume. The alarm did not work. The ice machine was in a small room or closet by itself. This room was filthy! No lights. You had to leave the door open to allow light in. The tray on the ice machine was broken out and had mold growing all around the hole in the tray. The last morning of our stay, I decided to visit the lobby for the "free continental breakfast". The only items they had was cereal. I believe they had cornflakes, rice krispies and cheerios. There was no milk, bowls, plates, spoons, napkins, juice, water or anything else that resembled a continental breakfast besides a toaster setting in front of the cereal containers. Had I not paid for the rooms last December, we would have never stayed there. I did not want to go through the hassle of trying to credit my card accounts and I doubted that there were any rooms available due to the Brickyard 400 that weekend. My son has three seats to the Brickyard reserved in his name, so we will be planning on numerous trips to Indianapolis in the future. We will not be staying at the Travelodge again.
