We arrived to the hotel on a Saturday night. That night I found two roaches in the room so I checked the dressers to make sure there were not anymore. I found another roach crawling across the front of drawer. I went to tell the front desk and was told that they did not have any other rooms; but would have someone spray the next day. The sheets were dirty and looked as though someone had slept in them the night before. The floor was filthy, when we would walk from the room onto the tile in the bathroom floor we would leave black footprints. I had to go buy a pair of sandals just to wear on the nasty floor.
The next day someone came and sprayed some roach killer throughout the room, but that was not enough we still found a roach on the front door. The front desk then told me that they would have Orkin come out and spray on Monday. When I took a shower, to my surprise there were roaches in the shower and bathroom. Throughout the next few days there were still roaches in the bathroom. I went to the front desk and asked again she said they had no rooms and she could have Orkin come out, I told her they were already supposed to. Later that day I caught the head maintainence man at which time he told me Orkin was not coming out they were going to take care of it.
The final night of our stay we went to a business meeting and when we returned to our room there was a roach on our table, one crawling out of my sock, and one crawling up the bed skirt onto the bed. I was so distraught at this time we were just going to leave and attempt the drive home; but the front desk was able to get us a room on another floor that was not infested with roaches (imagine that!!).
If we did not have business down here we would have left and went to another hotel. This hotel is extremely dirty and needs renovations.
