This hotel at first glance when walking into the lobby appeared pretty decent for the cheap price. However, once in the room, it became evident quickly that you get what you pay for. Curtains were made of thick rubbery material that had a moth-eaten appearance and hung crookedly. Windows were very dirty. Light came into the room around the door frame. None of the lights were plugged in, so we had to leave the curtain open in order to find plugs, which were scarce and the bare minimum of bulbs were in each fixture. Lighting was very dim. The alarm clock was never plugged in due to a plug shortage. The TV was old. The towels were very thin. The mattress was completely worn out and sagging, and sheets were coarse and poorly fitted. The blanket was a pilled up ratty thing. Pillow were flat and worn out. Metal pipes protruded from the bedframe approximately 5 to 6 inches on the sides and were hazardous to one's ankles. The tub barely drained while we used the shower, and we had to wade around in ankle deep soapy water. Breakfast was nothing special, and the only bread was a loaf of wheat bread with no tongs to remove slices with, so everyone who wanted some was handling the bread. A warning sign at the front desk stated that rooms were "inspected" on check-out and anything damaged or missing would be charged to our credit card to the tune of $200. I called the front desk to tell them no hair dryer was present in our room so we wouldn't be charged for it. The person said that they kept a hair dryer at the desk and charged a $5 deposit for its use. I had brought my own and wasn't concerned about that anyway. I asked that someone "inspect" our room when we checked out this morning, and the attendant at the front desk seemed clueless. I turned the sign around and pointed to their warning and asked to speak to the manager. She said no one was available, and that housekeeping would have to check the room later. I told her I didn't want to be held responsible for something missing that I had not taken. She said, "Oh, they only check to see if the TV, refrigerator, microwave, and alarm clock are still there. As long as they are still there, you are OK." I thought to myself that I would have no recourse if their housekeeping people stole something and claimed I'd taken it. Every other reasonably priced hotel in the area was booked for Baylor graduation this weekend, or I would have stayed just about anywhere else in Waco.
