We stayed at the Sleep Inn in Austintown on my wife's 38th birthday. When we arrived we noticed immediately that the indoor pool was extremely crowded with children. It was a small pool that could probably hold 25 comfortably, but there were at least 40 children running, jumping, screaming, etc. We found out later that it was a big birthday party. Using the pool was definitely out!
The room appeared large and comfortable. At first it appeared clean, but we found a large "pile" of toenail clippings on the carpet beside the bed where a previous guest had groomed themselves...apparently the room had not even been vacuumed! The restroom appeared clean as well, but after finding the clippings, we were never sure of any of this place’s cleanliness.
We decided to retire so we could get up early and continue our trip. At approximately 11:30 p.m. there was a loud knock on our door. One of the “birthday” kids had decided to run down the hallway knocking on doors.
When we arose in the morning, we decided to hang around a bit to see if the pool was “available”…again, it was not. My wife eventually jumped in the shower at about 9:20 a.m. At 9:30 there was a loud scream from the bathroom. My wife was totally soaped down and the hot water had suddenly turned icy cold! When I went to the front desk to complain, the desk manager explained that the hotel turned off all hot water to the rooms at 9:30 a.m. so that they could refill the pool. Check out time was not till 11 a.m. so that seemed totally ridiculous…or why not fill the pool with hot water in the middle of the night when the pool is closed and nobody is taking a shower? We didn’t even get an apology!
Maybe we just had a bad experience, but if its my money, I’d stay someplace else! On our way home, we did!
