I really want to give this hotel a great review because I was totally appreciative that they had a room for us. It was Saturday, October 6, and apparently homecoming weekend at appalachian state so EVERYTHING was booked. We got a room with 2 double beds and it was larger than most hotels of this nature, and our rate was $100 a night.
This red carpet in was built in the sixties and as such had cool (to me) retro tiles in the bathroom and vintage fixtures.
The most uncool thing about this room is that you absolutely can't sleep in it. Apparently because of the bed bug scare of 2010, or an actual overrun of bedbugs, they have strangled their mattresses and box springs in an extremely loud clear plastic, the kind I imagine playground sand is laid over or a landscaping fabric that prohibits weed growth. Its like sleeping on one of those blue tarps that people cover their lawnmowers with. I downloaded 4 different iphone apps or rain, oceans, and assorted other crap to try to mask he sounds and sleep, to no avail.
I'm generally not too picky about hotels, especially lower priced ones, as all i require is a bed and a shower. the plastic mattress thing is beyond ridiculous though.
