I am no stranger to inexpensive properties, and I am not a hotel snob. I do expect however to receive a clean room for my money. The first thing we noticed in this hellhole were the night stands-they were pulled away from the wall. Behind one was a previous tenants wallet, behind the other was some marijuana scattered on the carpet. The room smelled bad and was in dire need of remodeling as the wallpaper was falling off. I returned the wallet to the front desk, mentioned the marijuana on the floor of the room and was told " We will have to speak to housekeeping about that". No offer of a different room. As we used Choice Hotel reward points for our stay, we were not able to change properties. I later contacted Choice Hotels to see about getting a refund for our points, and was told we would not get the full amount, but they would give us 4000 points as a courtesy. Big deal-the room cost us 10,000. We later received a coupon for 25% off our next stay at that property. What a joke-we would rather sleep in a tent than return to that hotel. If this is an example of how Econolodge and Choice Hotels treat customers, I will take my business elsewhere.
