I was in town for business and just needed to stay for one night at a no frills type of hotel. This hotel had a decent rate and seemed sufficient for a last minute booking. The hotel is not in a nice area. There was a lot of questionable activity going on around the hotel. Somebody was smoking either in a room near mine or just outside my window. The AC units are wall units that blow in the outside air. Not usually a big problem, but in this case it might have been that it blew smoke into my room.
The walls are very thin. I could hear everything going on around my room. There was also a very loud fan that was running constantly for maybe 45 minutes out of every hour the whole night. It must have been in the bathroom in the room next to mine. I don't know exactly where it was from, but it was so loud and would go on for several minutes, then go off for maybe 2 minutes, then go on for several minutes, and repeat this cycle endlessly.
This is a low budget hotel which comes with low budget hotel problems. The towels and linens are cheap and everything about the hotel is just barely passable for a place where you just need to crash for a night. However, the thin walls and the fan issue (which is probably particular to my specific room) just pushed it over the edge for me and I was not even really able to sleep through the night, which makes this hotel fail, even for the limited purpose I needed it for. And I am not one of those people who have a hard time sleeping or complain about things normally. In fact, I can count on one hand the times that I have ever even taken the time to write a bad review of a place. I felt this one meritted a warning. I should have checked Trip Advisor before checking in because it appears that I am not the only one.
