I made the reservation thru choice hotels and usually when prices are slightly higher the property is usually nicer. I don't stay at quality inns very often because most are not great, I have stayed at some that were nice though. read some of the reviews on here and with most hotels in the area booked ans some decent reviews I took a chance.
When i arrived at the back of the lot and into the room it was the most depressing run down looking room I have seen in a long time. Absolutely no internet at all, took a few photos in disbelief and asked for another room.
They looked surprised at the front desk at my request, received another room which was worse but had a weak internet signal.
many people loitering in the parking lot, barbequeing etc.
many trucks and construction workers, and honestly, if you pay more than 40 dollars it is too much for this place.
I have rarely stayed in a place this bad, but not much choice that night in Meridian.
I wonder why some reviews were okay, maybe I was just extremely unlucky?
I had asked for non smoking, the second room had burn marks on the counter, burn marks on the carpeting, remains of spiders being smashed on the ceiling, torn bed cover, pieces of sheetrock missing, food remains in the room directory the list goes on. Almost a joke.
Next morning I was aksed how my stay was, in one word "terrible", they told me to talk to the manager for a refund, (I thought a good night was guaranteed), in hindsight I should have made a claim with the credit card company.
Uploaded some photos, but these really don't show the true condition at all.
Will never stay here again. Most choice hotels appreciate visits of diamond members, but not here. this room was 79.00 on the choice hotel website.
Needless to say I skipped breakfast.
