Upon arrival, we were given a tour. I guess this should have been the first red flag, most hotels don't give you a chance to back out. But with a quick glance, everything seemed ok for all the more time we would actually have been in the room. Boy, was I wrong. Unfortunately, it was 11pm when arriving back to the room and I was not about to pack up and move everyone. I was in room 320 on 3/21 (checked out 3/22), most of the light bulbs were burnt out, so the bright overheads above the bed were the only option to provide adequate light but too bright to enjoy relaxing. The toilet ran constantly after one flush. My son was playing on the floor, where he discovered cigarette butts under the bed. Disgusting. When pulling down the blankets, several hairs were in the bed. Disgusting. The front desk night clerk was obviously smoking marijuana in the elevator just as we returned. He had just stepped off and the smell was overwhelming. He was almost high enough that his functioning was on the verge of shutting down. From all appearances, he was later involved in an altercation between other individuals in the hallway right outside of are door which had my son frightened. Of course, being as high as he was, we had no way of reaching out to complain. Disgusting. The pool room was moldy, cold, and just plain dirty. While the water appeared clean enough, clearly the floor and tables in the area were not. The smell of dogs which were behind the front desk was overwhelming. Disgusting. The staff was rude. As we arrived for check in, not a single member of staff aside from the front desk spoke. They kept their heads down and made us feel we weren't welcome and about to have the scariest night of our lives. I cannot say one positive thing about this hotel.
Suggestion:Spend an extra $40 and book with the Holiday Inn Express across the street.
