I booked this hotel through Hotwire. Upon checking in, I was asked for a credit card for incidentals. Not sure what incidentals can be had at a dumpy Travelodge, but no problem, at least until he began writing down my credit card info on a piece of paper in the office. When he proceeded to turn the card over to get the verification number I told him to stop.
He said that they write down every customers credit card numbers since they do not have a machine. He then said that my reservation was canceled and to deal with Hotwire. Hotwire didn't care and said they would not refund they stay and I had to dispute the charge with my CC company who were amazed that a merchant is writing down numbers and not at least getting an imprint which shows how sketchy this place is. They immediately advised me to cancel the card and get a new one reissued.
Anyone who stays or has stayed here needs to check the card they used closely.
I am probably lucky I didn't end up staying here. The "lobby" check in area was disgusting. Walls were gross, huge chunks out of the floor tile. The breakfast area was the most pathetic thing I have ever seen.
At best, you may save 10-15$ over a better place in the same general area. It's not worth it. This place is a dump in all aspects.
