Ok, so let me start this off with my check-in. I paid for the room, and I also paid for the internet access codes. Mistake number one, the internet here is SLOWER than my THROTTLED AT&T Data Plan. I am talking 300-400 kbps. Not worth $3.00 a day.
Next, I go to my room. Not only does the exterior of the building look sketchy, but the inside does too. The shower is nasty (more of this to come), the beds are not comfortable and the room just does not smell "clean".
Fast forward, the sleep was ok, luckily I brought my own pillow and blanket. The people above me sounded like a heard of cattle every since I checked in. The walls are so thin here, I could hear one of my neighbors TVs throughout the night. The A/C was very loud, it almost sounded like the whole unit was vibrating when the cooling kicked on.
Finally, the grandest part of my stay...I woke up and was laying there, when all of a sudden, this nasty smell filled my nose. I got up and walked towards the bathroom, and the smell was getting worse. I looked in the bathroom and my shower had filled with water and sludge from the septic system...I immediately put on my clothes and went to get the rest of my nights refunded. I am about to check out now.
The only reason that I am giving this a 1 out of 5 (besides the fact that I have to) is because the lady at the front refunding my upcoming night there.
Side note, not sure what it is here, but about an hour after I checked in, my allergies started to flare, so if you have allergies, be careful.
