I am a 62 year old woman. Stayed here alone with my two small groomed dogs for one night while I looked at a home to buy. I made reservation online the day before so had no idea what I was to find. When I arrived there was not another car in lot. The creepy Indian "manager" gave me key to room but, the A/C didnt work and there was a curly black hair on sheet (it looked pubic) He then took me to another room where A/C did work. It seemed somewhat cleaner but, I still wanted to leave. (Womens intuition?) My friends had shown up for dinner and they convinced me to stay for "just one night". When I returned from dinner around 8, I found a mans (not mine!) dirty blue sock on the floor on the other side of bed, dirty facecloths and towels and still no other car around. It was too late to leave so, I just went to bed but, stayed awake all night worried about being alone there with the creepy "manager". Next AM I then noticed the half painted bath, months of grimy dust in vent, floor not vacuumed, filthy windows, cigarette butts all over the outside, big black stains (blood?) on both the sofa and chair and the sofa had been sewn up on the arm. Thank god I bring my own covers for the furniture! The grounds were just weeds. I believe he is also the "cleaning lady" and if the sheets look ok, he just remakes the bed. How else could a"hair" be in the middle of bed? Altogether a gross place and I would be glad to just not have bedbugs!
I walked my two little dogs and then went in to office to get a cup of coffee. The Indian "manager" said he was charging me another $25 for my dogs. (He saw the dogs the day before but, didnt say anything then) I told him I would not even mind if the room had been nice but, under the circumstances, absolutely not! We proceeded to get into a huge argument as he said he'd already taken the money. I told him that I was going to complain to Days Inn Corporate so I asked his name. He said it was "Don Smith". Right. Totally immature. I went back to pack and found that the little refrigerator had leaked all over the carpet and ruined a new pair of $65 Aerosole shoes that were sitting on the floor.I packed my car and before leaving, went back in to show him my shoes and say I wanted to be reimbursed for them, too. When I got home that evening, I lodged a complaint with DI Corporate and found that this "manager" is actually the Owner and his name is Patel, not Don Smith. Immature AND unprofessional. He also put another $75 charge on my credit card, telling corporate that the room smelled like pee and he had to "sanitize" it and couldnt rent it out for a week. REALLY? It wasnt evn close to being "sanitized" in the first place and, if there was a smell, it would be the wet carpet, not my little groomed dogs. He did it to spite me because I was going to complain about him and the shoes. So now he has taken $141 for a room that wasn't worth a dime. I had stayed at the Holiday Inn in the Villages the week before for 4 days with a full kitchen and it was very nice for less money. Do yourself a favor and do not go near this Bates Motel!!! I am going to warn everyone I can about him and his dump!
