My sister and I stayed here for two night the past weekend while we went to King's Dominion for Halloween Haunt. This is not my first time staying at this hotel, but it will be the last. I've stayed here before back when the people who own it used to run it as a Comfort Inn & Suites and it looks like it's never going to change.
Check in was fast.
The rest of it was nothing but disgust.
I noticed a few things like someone else's hair on the towels and dirty spots, but nothing too bad because we didn't have time to really check out the room since we basically just threw down our bags and headed to the park. By the time we got back we were so tired that we just fell into our beds. Same thing the next morning, got ready and headed straight for the park. It wasn't until we got back that we noticed just how disgusting the room was because my sister lost an earring that we looked for.
The things we found were dog food on the floor (we didn't bring any dogs with us) along with chip crumbs and peanuts (we didn't eat in the room either). I would like to point out that they weren't hidden behind things like the refrigerator or something, they were in plain view. We just didn't notice them at first because we had thrown our bags on top of most of the stuff when we got into the room. It was like housekeeping only cleaned the major traffic areas in the room. The duvet covers also had not been washed and had caked on stuff all over them that I do not wish to know what it was and the worst of all was the USED CONDOM we found behind the bed. I wish we had done so right then and there, but we decided to wait until we checked out the next morning to bring this all up because it was late and we were tired from walking around King's Dominion all day.
When we brought it up at check out we were told that there was nothing they were going to do about it since we didn't bring it up when we checked in, but that they will have the general manager call us when he got back on Monday. We reluctantly agreed, I left my contact number, and we left. It's now Wednesday and I still haven't received any phone call from the general manager.
I really wish we had taken pictures.
My advice, if you're going to King's Dominion, is to book a hotel in either Ashland or Glen Allen. It's not too far away, the hotels are nice, and you can probably get a better deal.
