I grew up in the area and came back for a reunion. The hotel is not in the best part of town but is was just about the only available room in town at the time.
The first red flag was when I was checking in, I asked if there was something going on in town since nearly every hotel in town was booked. She said yes and that's why they raised the rate. They might want to train the front desk staff not to admit they are price gouging the customer right off the bat. They had added another $40 to the regular rate.
The second red flag was when still checking in a very drunk man entered the lobby, apparently he was staying there and struck up a conversation with the clerk that was helping me. Instead of asking him to wait a moment she announced my room number right in front of him. Needless to say when I finished checking in a drove to the back to where the room was located, guess who was waiting for me?
Third red flag. The room itself was very outdated but my mother and I were only staying for two nights so didn't mind. The room has a giant jacuzzi tub that after a 6 hour drive I was very much looking forward to. However, the bathroom didn't look very clean...dirt and hair on the floor. So I thought I'd go ahead and run the jets in the tub for a little bit to make sure they were clean. Glad I did because when the jets came on mounds of the brownish guck came out that looked like a combo of old skin and mold. I decided no to use the tub. But I believe the damage was done. My mother who was traveling with me suffers form COPD and within an hour of being in the room the coughing started and continued and continued until she was in a full blown severe attack. We were both up all night.
We decided we couldn't stay another night and as there were no other rooms in town and with the severity of the attack we left.
I do have to say the clerk when checking out was very helpful and when I explained why we had to leave early she immediately credited me for the second night.
Within an hour of leaving the room my mothers symptoms started to clear.
With jetted tubs they should be cleaned everyday with some sort of antimicrobial chemical. It was clear that this had likely never happened.
