I'm a traveling nurse on assignment in Cedar Rapids. Of course, I was budget conscious and regretted that every second I was there. I booked because of the online pictures. The pictures are a fraud. Those rooms don't exist. The front dest is adequate, nothing like the rooms. The walls are paper thin. The cleanliness was non existant. There was paneling on one wall and that was literally coming off the bases. It was bubbling out. The bedspread was paper thin too. Stains all over the mattress, refrigerator was filthy, bathroom sink almost falling off the wall, remote for tv didn't work, shady patrons, late night yelling from other guests.
I bring my own bedding and cleaning products (even travel with my vacuum). After thuroughly cleaning the room and placing my own bedding, it felt slightly better. Three days in, I started developing little bumps on my arms, neck, and face. They itched like crazy too. Finally had to go to urgent care only to find out I developed scabies. OH MY GOD. I told the front desk and they had to nerve to say I didn't get it from there. I didn't come with them.
