We'd been traveling for 9 hours & had tried hotel/motels for hours, but most were booked for the Taladega groups moving through. We stopped here because we were just so tired & needed to get off the road. At check-in, my dad asked for 2 rooms & was told, that'll be $120. Seemed like a good deal. I walked in just short of my dad giving the night manager his credit card & asked him what the price for each room would be. He said "I just told you - $120." I balked at this as it was apparent this wasn't a 4-5 star hotel - just some place off the interstate. Dad insisted we just go ahead & stay since he was so tired & I agreed. When we got to our rooms, I noticed that the headboard on one of the beds had slipped off the wall & was leaning against the headboard. I didn't want to get blamed for this, so I sent my daughter to tell the manager. He said, "What do you want me to do about it?" We later discovered the toilet wouldn't flush (no help from mgt), the remote wouldn't work (told by mgt - just hit it really hard, that should make it work), the light in the sink area of the bathroom wouldn't come all the way on - just flickered & buzzed (mgt said "leave the light off"). My parents' room wasn't as bad, but they said the noise coming through the thin walls kept them up all night and their toilet wouldn't work, either. Upon leaving, I stopped in to tell the manager that I was very disappointed in not only the condition of the room, but the rudeness I experienced when trying to get some of the issues rectified. I told him I'd never stay in his hotel again & we pass through there yearly. His response? "No problem, we still have plenty of other paying guests." AARGH!
