Upon entering my hotel room at the Knight’s Inn in Cave City, Kentucky, I was tempted to walk right back out the door. I will have to admit, the door opened and the lights turned on, the only two things that went smoothly throughout my stay. The temperature in the room was freezing. It was in the mid 30s on a November night and the heat had not been turned on. When I turned it on, there was no knob on the temperature control, so it was either on or off. After laying my luggage down, I sat on the bed and realized that there was no remote for the television. I turned the TV on manually, but could barely make out the pictures on the screen because the reception was very fuzzy. I ventured to the bathroom and was utterly disgusted. Dead bugs and spiders, cobwebs, and hair adorned the floors while the shower appeared to have not been cleaned in several weeks. When I turned the water on to make sure it worked properly, I got a brown, rusted liquid as the result. Not only was this liquid repulsive, it did not drain properly. Upon calling the front desk to complain about the malfunctioning drain and to ask for an ice bucket, they sent a teenage girl to fix my drain and bring me an ice bucket that was dirty and had hair inside. Upon inspection of the drain, she concluded that she would bring us some Drano, but they must have run out because she never came back. In a room with two double beds, there were only two towels for three occupants. As we found out the next morning, the towels were no thicker than napkins and we might as well have used toilet paper to dry ourselves. When I asked the manager for more, he told me that if I was not satisfied, I should have brought my own. As I tried to relax in my room, I pulled the blankets down on my bed and was greeted by brown and black splotches. I was unable to conclude whether they were stained or soiled from the previous occupants of the room, but I would venture to guess it was the latter. The pillows were also soiled and had a distinct odor, as if they had not been washed recently. I endured the night, but was upset to find that for the second night, they had not even emptied the trash out of my room, let alone attempted to clean the bathroom or bed sheets. I never took my socks off and did not sleep under the covers in my room because of the filth that surrounded me. I neglected to bathe the second morning I was there because I simply thought that I would be cleaner by refraining from entering the disgusting shower. The manner in which this hotel conducts business irks me, but the management doesn’t listen and doesn’t care. Needless to say, I will never stay in another Knights Inn.
