My husband and I stayed at the Red Roof Inn in Plymouth, NH June 15th. We left the a.m. of the 16th. We were up there for my son's orientation at PSU. We had made our reservations a couple of months in advance. I am disabled, and didn't think I would be comfortable staying on campus. We were told it was BIKE week plus PSU orientation weekend. So, rates would be double. It was $144.99 for one night. I remember from years ago the Red Roof Inn was nice, and I knew the hotels were filling up fast. So, I figured spend the extra money, and stay somewhere nice.
Boy, was I wrong! When we first got there the receptionist didn't even know how to check us in because we were paying in cash. She actually said that. When we went to the room. We knew instantly it wasn't what we expected. They stuck us in a corner room on the first floor. I had originally had a 2nd floor room, but had requested a first floor because of the stairs. When I called back to confirm this past week they had a first floor available. I told them I didn't require the handicapped room. That should be for someone in a wheelchair. The steps were hard for me, and I knew I would have to walk a lot for orientation. But, I did appreciate that I could get a first floor room. So, as we entered the room there was a bad smell. It was dingy, dirty and disgusting. The entire room had a pugnent musty odor. The odor in the room was apparent as soon as you walked in. The curtains smelled, the sheets, blanket ,bedspread smelled, were dirty and looked about 10 years old. When I took my shoes off the rug was moist! All over! There was no refrigerator or coffeemaker. The furniture looked dingy and one of the chairs was dirty. There were signs of water damage to the ceiling throughout the room. The toilet paper dispenser was broken, with the toilet paper just hanging there almost falling on the floor. There was also dirt on the outside of the toilet like it hadn't been washed well. There was no liquid soap to wash your hands. The doors to the outside were right outside our room. They were unlocked. Both of them. There was also a chip mark on our room door like someone had tried to break in. Out back there was a huge dumpster filled with furniture, right in front of the swimming pool. Very attractive! We were concerned about sleeping in the bed, so we slept on top. The smell when you were in the bed was horrible.
We couldn't even eat in the room because the smell was too disgusting. We were nervous because of the unlocked door next to us, and with the condition of the room, needless to say we didn't sleep well. We couldn't wait to leave the next a.m. We stayed here because we figured that everybody else would be booked for the weekend, and maybe it wouldn't be that bad. It was.
