We reserved a room 3 weeks prior to our visit to this Inn Town Suites location. Once we arrived after flying 8 hrs and driving 9 hrs, they didn't have the room available that we reserved. So, we booked in to a much higher priced ($650/wk) kitchenette a few miles down the street.
Once the room of our request became available at the Inn Town Suites, we then relocated. At first glance, the room was sketchy. Dirty carpet, dirty walls, worn furniture. They actually have aluminum foil wrapped around the drip bowl on the stove top! The refrigerator actually had mold in it! The sheets were dingy and the comforter had a hole in it that had been badly patched.
Even with all of the negative signs we decided to stick it out. We were in town for business, not pleasure. We were more interested in saving a penny. And that's why we needed a kitchenette so that we could prep and cook our own food.
When I awoke from my sleep on the first night and turned on the lights, there were roaches EVERYWHERE! It looked like someone had thrown a 1 lb. bag of raisins all over the walls! I thought I was dreaming but I wasn't. Because they started moving. They were even in the microwave and fridge!
I threw away about $200 worth of food, $100 in clothes and they kept my $50 deposit because we left super early.
Needless to say, we're back and the $650/wk hotel and I couldn't be happier.
