Let me begin with stating due to current circumstances, I was left with no choice but to lodge at this hotel. This is my 5th week here in this Awful place.
The daytime staff is very nice and chipper...to say the least. However, the night shift employees are exteamly uncouth! Two employees seem to alternate during the week. One, sleeps the whole time. If you need your key card reprogramed, its like waking a beast. His eyes are always bloodshot like he smoked an ounce of marijuana before work.
The second employee lacks manners and is a far cry from polite. If you do decide to stay here, do try to refrain from any and all complaints as you will end up with a finger in your face whilst being barked at. Dont even try and explain yourself to this one...he obviously is uneducated and probably wont understand what you are saying anyway. It will only result in you being insulted and laughed at. After him not understanding me I obviously told him he didnt n began reiterating myself only to be cursed and yelled at. I can go on for ages about how insulting he is, but im sure you get the point..total lack of respect..
So when you first walk in the room doesnt aplear to be all that bad....until..
*you close the door and find a gaping hole in the wall
*when you flush the toilet water floods the bathroom
*The ac works sometimes..however im not sure if id want mold, mildew and whatever else circulating through the room.
*you go to take a shower and find the shower head covered in mold and mildew.
*blood stains, burnholes and tears in the linen
*only half the lighting works
*slow slow slow internet
*outlets that shock you when you ATTEMPT to plug something in...yes, attempt...the devices never remain plugged in and fall out of the socket.
*The power goes out frequently
Now for the rest...yes..more!
Unless you are a heavy sleeper, youll never sleep. Doors are being slammed NON STOP! There are always parties in the parking lot. The glass was smashed out of the side door. You hear couples arguing loudly all night.
To sum it up...you would have to be ABSOLUTELY PSYCHOTIC to stay here. If you are like me and have a pet (I have a 3lb chi) and are left with no other option but to stay here, PLEASE do NOT bring your children.
I will try to post pics along with my review.
