At check in the Manager pulled me aside and said there was a problem with my room. His English was poor so I understood there was some issue with the floor. It was late and I had no transportation to attempt to find other accommdations so I said I could deal with it.
It took about 30 minutes to check in. I work in IT so I understand that you can have problems with computer systems. I took that in stride.
When I got to my room there was a large red spot on the floor, that looked like a blood stain. Maybe it was, maybe it was koolaid, I'm not squeamish about something I can step over so I took it in stride. After all I'd been warned. However, I soon discovered my bathroom had no shower curtain and no shower rack on which to hang a curtain. When I tried to turn on the TV, I discovered that it had no power cord. I called the Front desk to let them know and they said a maintenance man would be in on Wed. It was Monday.
Perhaps the maintenance man can only come on Wednesdays, perhaps there are no more shower curtain rods in Odessa, and they have to ship them in from Dallas, but a power cord for a TV. You could get one at the local hardware store.
The staff could have cared less.
I checked their internet connection just to see if something worked, and if you want a trip back to 1990s modem speed be sure to stop here and check it out.
So I went to bed early only to discover the Mattress was broken down and lumpy. So I lay there trying to fall asleep and listening to the foot traffice in the rooms above and outside my door. The walls are apparently pretty thin.
The breakfast bar in the morning doesn't even have fruit.
Funny thing is I normally never give a bad review on anything, but this place really torqued me for some reason.
It is hard to imagine how so many people gave this place a good review. It is a dump. One review mentioned the staff running out in the rain to get their car for them. It wasn't service. The staff member was probably just didn't realize it was raining.
I recommend you avoid this place. I certainly will in the future.
