This is a truly scary hotel. There was a fight and yelling in the hallway in the middle of the night. No hotel staff was present to do anything about this. There are many criminal types hanging around and I felt unsafe. There are chain locks on the room entrance door and the balcony door, but none on the door that is shared between rooms and the door did not lock. The ownership of this hotel should install dead bolts for the doors instead of chain locks. The front door is left unlocked. A person does not need a hotel key to enter and there is no staff here at night in the lobby. They probably cannot stay because its dangerous for them to since the owners of the hotel have not invested in card key locks for the front door. Anyone from the street can come in and do anything they want. When I walked to my room, people would open their doors, come out to see who was walking by and stare at me as if they were paranoid about something.
The air conditioning was blowing the drapes wide open so I had to turn it off so that no one would see me from outside the window. If there were heavier window panels this would not happen. The bed linens smelled dirty so I did not sleep under the covers. the bed linens need to be cleaned after every guest.
In the morning when I went to take a shower, there were drops of blood on the bathroom floor, small pubic hairs in the shower and the towels were stained, tattered and frayed. I know the towels don't have to be the best quality, but at least the ownership of this hotel can invest in NEW thin towels that are not disintegrating or stained. The bathroom surfaces should be scrubbed clean so that even if some one has bled on the floor, the next guest should not know about it.
The pool was filthy and starting to manifest a green color. Looking back, I should have stayed in the bed and breakfast by the park even if they had no pool and had ugly online pictures. I chose the Travelodge Centroplex because of its close location to the park, the pictures and the pool. Whenever those pictures were taken, those days are long gone! What a shame.
The coffee room had no coffee.
One manager or bossy associate was poorly dressed in sloppy, grungy, non-uniform clothes and treated his fellow employees in an unprofessional bossy manner in front of guests. I would tell that manager or bossy associate to dress in uniform, trim his facial hair and comb ALL of his hair neatly when he is in front of the guests in his hotel, especially if he is going to be bossy toward another employee and seem like the management example others need to follow.
The front desk staff is the only great thing about this hotel because they are polite, helpful, neat looking and professional. They are the only reason I did not run away from this place when I arrived. They get an "extremely satisfied" from me, but everything else in the hotel is extremely dissatisfying and disapointing.
The ownership of this hotel should fix this place, upgrade and clean EVERYTHING! Then they should charge more money so that the criminal types of people do not want to spend the money to stay here. That is an easy way to keep them out.
It seems like this place was once great and nice, but the ownership has allowed it to become run down. If it were my property, I would take better care of it because there will always be guests to stay in that great location, but not if it is this bad and dangerous. Travelodge can make good money if they take care of this place. I don't understand why they don't.
I would not have stayed here if I knew the place was so scary and gross.
