This was by far the worst hotel experience of my life. I called every hotel from Rochester to Buffalo and they were all completely booked. A nice lady at one of the hotels in Buffalo told me that the Orchard Park Inn was the only place she knew of that had any vacancies. I was expecting a bad hotel but when I arrived at the Orchard Park Inn I was instantly blown away by how terrible the place was.
When we first walked into the room we noticed the terrible smell, the dirty floor, the mold everywhere and the smoke alarm sitting on a coat rack with it's battery sitting next to it. All bad signs.
Next we did a close inspections of the beds. All of the sheets were stained and one of the mattresses was cover in a stain that looked a lot like blood. Once again bad signs. We decided to stick it out and grabbed a couple of blankets from the car to cover the beds.
We decided it was best to leave the lights on, mostly to scare away the bugs we figured would be out scurrying around, this was a bad call. About 15 minutes after we laid down I woke to my buddy screaming. He was screaming because there was a 2 inch long hornet flying around the light between our beds. After a lengthy battle I managed to kill the hornet. I then cut off the light between the beds and cut on the bathroom light.
Once we were able to calm back down it was time to go back to sleep. This time I got to sleep for a good 20 minutes before all power in the room went out including the extremely loud little window air conditioning unit. The power flickered on and off for about five minutes then finally cut back on for good.
I was just about to fall back to sleep when I heard some more buzzing in the bathroom. I opened my eyes to see two more of the giant hornets flying around the bathroom light. I quickly jumped up and closed the bathroom door. As I did this my buddy asked me if I heard any buzzing coming from the AC unit. He walked over to the unit just as another hornet came flying out of it.
This was enough and we quickly gathered our belongings and left the room. From the time we first walked into the room to the time we left was right around two hours.
We went to the front office where I informed the manager that there were giant hornets in out room. She replied "just in the bathroom" a statement not a question. This gave me the feeling that she knew about them and gave us the room anyway. To top it all off she refused to give a refund for the room.
Under no circumstances should anyone ever stay at this motel. I honestly believe that you are risking your life by doing so.
