I stayed at the Rodeway Inn Westminster last night. I was traveling to the area for work and had a hard time finding a room anywhere near where I had to be early this morning. This place seemed to get pretty good reviews on here, it was cheap, and it was close. I am not picky in any way, so I went with it. Biggest. Mistake. Ever.
I don't care if my room is nice; I don't care if my bed is too firm or too soft. I simply require a safe, clean-ish place to sleep with reasonable wifi and hot water. This place had hot water. That is all.
Here's the thing--if you don't live in an area, you don't know the reputation of a certain hotel. And you find yourself sharing a wall with someone who is very clearly being paid to bang the headboard all night at regular intervals (this was not one overly amorous couple; headlights came and went all night). I had to turn the AC on high to drown out the noise; I could also hear the tv in the room on the other side, but I was actually kind of thankful for that.
Aside from...that...the carpet was damp. The wifi went in and out (and I needed it to get my perfectly legitimate work done) The light in the bathroom flickered. And everything felt greasy. And I felt like things were crawling on me all night--even before the moaning in the next room began.
When I arrived at my job site this morning and told the people I was working with--locals--where I stayed, you should have seen the look of horror in their eyes. A woman I had met seconds before offered to let me stay with her tonight instead of going back (thankfully I was moving on and did not need to take her up on it, but rest assured, I'd not have spent an additional night in that room. Had it not been super late when I arrived and had I not needed to get up super early to be at work the next morning, I would have left (even having paid) and gone somewhere else. I shudder to think what went on in that room before I slept there.
Just don't stay here. And regarding management--the man who checked me in was REALLY, really nice. So nice I feel badly writing this. But I need other people looking into this to know: stay somewhere else. I wish I had.
