On a recent trip to main campus my bf and I were looking for a cheep place to spend the night as our plans had fizzled when a friend flaked on us. Seeing as it was a busy weekend for the campus (State Patty's Day) we didn't expect to be able to get anything nice at a good price so we thought this would be our best bet on a budget. I should have followed my instincts and turned around. Something told me it would not be a good experience.
Well turns out my instincts were dead on. The two boys on night duty seemed to barley function but were able to get us checked in eventually. Upon entering out room I was a even more convinced. The room was tiny but on the surface appeared ok if a bit dank and creepy. On closer inspection I was horrified to find saw dust or some sort of powder all over the carpet, hair all over the pillows(if u want to call them that since they were about as thick as a small notebook) and some very suspicious looking red stains on the sheets And undersides of the pillows.
I've stayed in some cheep motels before but I told my boyfriend that I would rather sleep on the floor of my very tiny 2 seater car than stay there another minute!
We were in the room less than five minutes so hoped to get our money refunded. We were told that the manager would have to approve a refund and that we would have to return the next morning. At this point it was 11 pm and we were angry enough to almost make our 3.5 hour drive home.however we were able to get a much nicer room at the local super 8 ( very nice,competent staff, CLEAN rooms). We returned the next day and had to argue with the manager on dutty for 10 minutes before she reluctantly agreed to refund our money after repeatedly accusing us of lying about the condition of our rooms.
Over all it was a TERRIBLE experience. Do NOT waste your time or money!
