I got into my room tonight and it smelled like stale smoke, as though someone had tried to mask year-old cigarette stench without replacing carpet and wallpaper. The room itself appeared to be clean, and it's in an old building,
The creepier part about it was my ride down the elevator to the pool at 9:30pm. I was alone on the elevator, and two very creepy looking guys got on the elevator with me and rode the rest of the way down. Their general appearance indicated they were looking for trouble, and they had blocked the back door open with a plastic grocery bag jammed full of something. I reported them to the hotel front desk, but am still not looking forward to trying to sleep tonight. I'm too tired to find another hotel, so I just rode the elevator back up to my floor alone and went to my room, and securely locked the door. Not going to be a restful night, I can tell you that.
This hotel needs major renovations - Holiday Inn, if you're listening, please tear this facility down, and build a modern, secure facility with good cameras and better security staff. I won't stay here at this particular hotel again.
