We booked this hotel through priceline only because it was advertised as a Travelodge, which we've stayed at before and have had no issues with. This place is an absolute dump and has no resemblance to a Travelodge whatsoever. When we arrived on August 9, we were immediately turned off by the run down office area where you check in. Also free parking was advertised, but there were only 13 spaces for the 60 or so rooms! So we were told we had to park on a side street a block away. The walkways are covered with broken tiles and the carpeting covering the stairs looks like it hasn't been vacuumed in months. We went up to our room and noticed a huge gap above the air conditioning unit, which we plugged with a towel. There were holes in the ceiling and walls that were not spackled. Many of the hotel room doors have dents and scuff marks from obviously being kicked in. There were several missing ceiling tiles exposing overhead plumbing. There was no telephone and a sleeve of CONDOMS in the nightstand drawer! There were no towels and no soap. A few seconds later a woman burst into our room without knocking to give us towels. The towels had human hairs on them and were obviously dirty so we took them back down to the office. They gave us more towels and we questioned if they were really clean. We asked the employees in the office if there was a maid service and they said NO!! How does this hotel even have a license let alone to be listed on priceline? The toilet in the bathroom also did not flush (and they knew it because a plunger was provided). We complained to both Travelodge and Priceline who said they would do an investigation. The owners of this place are true slumlords. The state health dept should audit and will undoubtedly close this place and the owners should have their hospitality licenses revoked!
