First - the managers at the El Rancho - were extremely friendly and curtious. They were great and helpful.
Where do I begin? Here's what we experienced:
Carpet - oh my gosh so dirty and stained we didn't want to walk around without shoes on
one of us had no hot water in the morning - due to guests using their showers
the in-room coffee maker - had to be put on the floor to use - as the outlet was too far down for the cord to reach.
the front door - didn't shut completely - we couldn't use the deadbolt
the bathroom floor had a huge stain in the linoleum - very bad looking stain!
we found out after day 1 - that they don't replace/clean the coffee pot or cups - we were to clean our own cups
there was no blow dryer or iron in the room
had to hold handle down on toilet - as it wouldn't flush properly without holding it down
Mattresses...rates up there as 2 of the worst we've come across
there was no phone in the room
All in all - we'll never stay at the El Rancho again.
I'm very disappointed - as before I made my reservation, I read all the reviews here on TripAdvisor - and they were good, postiive - and put motel in a great light... I even discussed this with the manager! I was just floored when we found out what the motel was really like - so things appear to have changed greatly over time.
