I'm not overly picky when I choose budget hotels like this one, but I do expect them to be clean, comfortable and provide a sense of security...this hotel provided none of that.
There is a hotel right next door that advertises weekly rates for $29, and when we arrived (at 9:30 pm) there were several shady looking characters hanging around. That didn't do much for our sense of security.
The elevator reeked of something, I don't want to know what, our “non-smoking” room smelled smokey, and I'm not sure if the bathroom was actually dirty, or clean and covered in stains. The bedsheets had cigarette stains and tears in them, and the smoke detector was missing from it's mount on the ceiling. We didn't take our shoes off, except when we were in bed, and we kept our toothbrushes packed in our toiletry bags as I had visions of bugs crawling around the bathroom at night...Didn't pass the criteria for clean, either.
The beds were only marginally softer than sleeping on the ground...So much for being comfortable.
We were given no amenities except a bar of soap and a shampoo. I'm not one to complain when hotels skimp on the amenities like shampoos, lotions, etc. as I understand they need to save $$ here & there, but a bathmat would have been nice. We were only given 2 sets of towels for our family of 4, and we had to use one of the hand towels as a bathmat! I would have complained, but we didn't notice until the morning, and by then we just wanted out of there, so we had the kids shower when we arrived at our next destination instead. Also, there was no alarm clock, tissues, or even cups!
Even though we were only there about 9 hours, I wish we would have spend the extra $30 and stayed at the Best Western instead.
