My husband and I stayed at this hotel over a week ago. I waited to review until I had cooled down enough to write a concise and rational review. Our room was filthy. I always carry cleaning towelettes with me, and it took me an hour to do the room to the point I was willing to touch anything. We had a 'suite' (means it has a wet bar and micro) which had a dirty sink, urine spots on the toilet seats, sticky rings on nearly every surface. My Chlorox towelettes were dark grey when I finished with each one, and I used most of a nearly new canister. I always take a sheet from home with me to cover the bedspread if needed, but this time I used it like a 'sleeping liner' ala youth hostel custom. The carpeting felt hideous the few seconds it took to change from sox to slippers.
Why did we stay, you may ask? It was a busy weekend, so I knew hotels would be booked. We had bad weather driving and checked in late at night, and simply were too exhausted to drive around so late, hoping for a better situation. Because it was so late, there was only one staff member around, and when I asked for another room the response was, basically, "huh?"
I normally leave a good tip for the housekeeping staff, but in this case the hotel owed *me* for cleaning services.
Additionally, this hotel is all by itself in one of the worst locations I have ever seen, and I travel a great deal. There is some sort of refinery/factory across the road, and a XXX girls/girls/girls club down a block next to one of those 'short nap' motels.
The entire experience was just ugh.
