On our drive home from a recent trip up north, my whole family came down with the stomach flu. After trying to power through the seven hour drive, we finally gave up at hour four and decided to check into a hotel. My only request as to what hotel we stayed at is that it must be modern and nice. This was a time for super clean sheets to climb under and a modern bathroom all my own. We didn't have the time or energy to look up discounts online, so we pulled into the Fairfield Inn expecting to pay a bit more than we normally would.
Usually, a $110/night would not be bad for a weekend stay at a pretty nice hotel, but we checked in on a Monday and the whole hotel was under construction. Upon check-in, we noticed some work on the outside of the building, but were not told about all the inside renovations happening.
The room itself was decent, but the clock was not plugged in, there was absolutely no soap in the whole room/bathroom, the bathroom had a broken shower fixture, and the tub and bathroom floor were dirty. It looked as if the hotel wasn't planning on renting the room out anytime soon. The floor on which our room was located had drywall dust all over and there was no ice machine. The breakfast room was decent and looked like it had been renovated recently. The complimentary breakfast had a decent amount of choices.
