Well long story short a friend and I booked this room via internet for a friends going away party. First off when we checked in the woman at the front desk seemed to be irritated that we had interrupted her from whatever she was doing , and shortly after that we walked around to our room and were shocked at the smell alone when we first entered. Seriously this place looked like it hadn't been renovated since it had been built. On to the next discovery the was FOOD left in the fridge from the previous guests! not to mention the cigarette burns in the carpet and the rust in the bathroom. The real coup de grâce was after pulling back the bedspread we discovered what looked to be fleas as well as disgusting stains all over both our bed linens. On to the last stage of this epic journey we immediately grabbed our stuff and got the hell out of there and went to the front desk to get our money back , we were met with this "up yours" attitude by the same lovely woman who had checked us in 5 min earlier who refused to give us a refund because we had pulled the sheets back on the beds and then accused us of having sex in the bed . So after she insisted we leave NOW we drove down the street a couple blocks and stayed at the Howard Johnson's which was just perfect the staff the room the location everything. So that's our story hope it helps.
