I reserved a room here for four nights this past weekend. When I arrived the hotel staff was very friendly. They told me about the breakfast hours and were very helpful. I had a great first impression. My first warning sign was how the responded when I told them I had found the hotel on Tripadvisor and that they were rated number four in Lubbock. They were surprised to say the least. My in-laws are all from Lubbock and they were worried about us staying there too.
Anyway, I got out of the elevator, and there was a couple just SCREAMING at each other in the room across from the elevator. I ran down to my room hoping they wouldn't come out as I was in the hall. My mother in law was with me and we got into the room and took a good look around. The place wasn't filthy dirty on the surface, but it looked all stained up, banged up, and musty. It reminded me of what I would imagine a rent by the hour hotel to look like versus what a medical center hotel would be like. In a word- SEEDY.
To the hotels credit- The staff immediately took care of going up to the noisy room and taking care of the problem. They told me they would kick out that couple before they would want to see me go.
I just couldn't stay at that point. I was going to have to stay there two nights by myself and I just didn't feel safe. I ended up at the Townesuites by Marriott. I think it was 80 dollars more for the entire stay. Worth every penny!
Sorry I didn't take any pictures, I just got the heck out of there as fast as I could!
