Stayed there last night (10/28/04) The room was dirty. The furniture was sticky, as well as the floor. The bathroom was old and rusty. The curtains had brown stains all over them and were falling apart. But the worst part was what happened this morning when I went to grab my shoes from under the bed. I got a hold of a pair of men's dirty underwear that were left under there - not mine of course. That's when I decided to go downstairs and complain. It takes a lot to make me mad. The underwear did it. I picked up the underwear with a plastic bag, took it down to the front desk, and explained to the desk clerk about the filthy conditions we had endured. She said "I'm sorry about that, we'll talk to the housekeeper." That's it. So, I asked to speak with the manager. Told her the story, got a whole $10.00 refund off the $50.00 I paid. I was not happy and will never stay in a Travelodge again. I advise others of the same. I DO have a suggestion. There is a coupon in the Traveler's magazine for Ramada Plaza Hotel in downtown Charleston. You can pick up these coupon books at most travel plazas. It gives you a room rate of $57.95. (It's regularly $112.00 and up.) Needless to say we did not stay over at Travelodge, and decided to give the Ramada a try. It was FANTASTIC! We travel 6 days a week and have stayed at a lot of places. This was the best. Can't say enough about it. Clean, Beautiful, Pool, Sauna, Nautilus workout room, Parking, Lounge, Full breakfast. For less than $60!
We will stay there every time we are in the Charleston area.
