yuck yuck yuck if it wasn't so late at nite already (there is a reason this place still has vacancies when noone else does-beware!)and we were exhausted and it wasn't so hot outside (and we find out after check in and paid!! the ac in one of 2 rooms wasn't working so you guessed it we all ended up in one room but paid for two!!)
the vcr was missing parts so not working and the movies were ones that are free in the grocery store before grocery stores stopped carrying movies.
the smell when you enter is awful..and gets worse, pervading even the clothing in your suitcase) as you don't get used to it. In the lobby the creeping vine plants hang over you while you are eating (not) and the manager (very hard to understand his speaking) went straight to the waffle batter or maybe french toast & juice after sneezing a juicy one into both hands, One of our party hollered out "BLESS YOU!" but he didn't get it and went on to the orange juice. The coffee we had just poured and thank goodness noone had touched yet was left behind, but unfortunately not the awful memory.
Just in case business men are out there thinking this is a great deal when you are on your company's travel budget ..it is not...You almost have to get a room at another hotel just to take a shower after this one! yuck! We went to a restaurnat for breakfast and the first place we went after the hostess said how many was to the restroom to wash hands!
