I recently stayed at this hotel to attend a funeral in Delano, CA. It seemed clean upon check in but when I arrived to my room it became a whole different story! As I set my laptop down on the desk and turned the light on, I noticed the lamp shade had some dark red stains! Then, I looked over to the curtains (desk was near window) and it also had dark red stains. As I looked closer, the stains appeared to be dried blood. I quickly took out my iPhone, took pics of the stains, and walked over to the front desk. I told the employee that it appeared that someone had been injured in my room as there were blood stains everywhere. She looked at the pictures and said she would notify the housekeeping staff in the AM as the hotel was fully booked. No denial on the blood stains so I assume there had been some sort of altercation in the room. It was so difficult to sleep that night as I had so desperately wanted 9 am to come (when housekeeping arrived) so I could switch rooms! The next day when a room became available a nice gentlemen had knocked on my door to show me a room that had recently been cleaned. He took the time to show me the new room and made sure I was 100% satisfied. The room was definitely better and I appreciated his concern. You can't really expect too much from a Holiday Inn so I gave this hotel three stars for the following reasons: --Complimentary breakfast (cereal, yogurt, eggs, sausage, cinnamon rolls, biscuits, gravy, pancakes, bagels, toast, coffee, apple, orange, and passion fruit juices).
-Complimentary wireless internet in room.
-Fridge and microwave in room.
-Laundry on site (second floor, $1.50)
-Flat screen TV.
There aren't many options in Delano but this hotel is probably one of the better ones. Had I not seen the stains, I would've said this hotel was just a little bit above average.
