The Meadowbrook Lodge in Jericho, NY is a very scary place. The introduction to my stay consisted of the clerk (placed behind bulletproof glass) not having any idea about my internet reserveration. When I showed her the paperwork she and her husband began to discuss the reservation and the rate. After 10 minutes I was given a room, but the rate was higher than I had reserved. However, it was late and the difference was a couple of dollars. On to the Room!
As we walked up toward our room, we noticed that the metal stairs were nearly rusted away. I walked very gingerly to our second floor room. The second floor walkway was leaning quite a bit toward the outside. By the time we made it toward our room we were not expecting much, but even these low expectations were too high for the Meadowbrook Motor Lodge. The room, while appearing clean, was in pretty bad shape. The center of the floor was sinking so that the TV cabinet was leaning severly. The floors were also very soft and I felt like we could cave in at any minute, the walls were marked up and dirty, the bathroom was very beat-up and there was the TV cable literally hanging across the room. (I will add pics once I get them developed). The room was absolutely hideous. I was suppose to stay several nights, but we only stayed one because of the late hour.
To add to our experience, when we checked out the next morning, the day clerk ended up charging us about $20 more than the reserveration. Due to the language barrier, maybe Hindi, I only halfheartedly argued.
The only positive thing I can say is they did have wireless -- It allowed me to find another hotel that night.
What a total dump. It also appeared to be used by the short-term professional trade.
