The room was dirty & NONE of the lights worked. There was garbage from the previous guest in the room, dirty linens and a crusty, bloody earring laying on a chair. We had requested a handicap accessible room & called to say that we would be arriving late. We were told that it would be fine. I repeated that we were traveling with a disabled person & needed an accessible room. They said it would be no problem. When we arrived, we were given a room on the second floor in a hotel with no elevator. Had to CARRY our compainion up and down the steps as we could not find another hotel with any rooms available.
ALSO, we booked the room because the site said there was semi parking. One of our vehicles was a large moving truck. They wanted us to jocky our truck which was hauling a full size vehicle behind it down a narrow drive & park it behind the bar next door. Even if we could have fit the truck down the drive, there was a large camper blocking the way which looked as if it had been there for quite some time. They suggested parking about 10 blocks away at the KMart parking lot. We didn't really want to park all our belongings that far away and walk through a questionable neighborhood at night. In the end, the lady at the Best Western (about a block away) took pitty on us. Even though she was booked up for the night, there was room in their well lit parking lot for our truck & she let us park there free of charge.
The girl working at the desk was a teenager & the waiting room was full of (about 6 - 10) teenage boys, just hanging out and using the hotel internet. When we checked out the next morning, the lobby was still full of teenage boys, some of whom were still on the hotel internet. We now live in Kent and can honestly say that this is NOT a nice section of town. Stay away from Days Inn Kent - Meeker Street!
And, oh yeah - The water still wasn't hot!
