While being stranded on the highway during a horrible ice/snow storm (I was not the only one), picked up by patrol car and taken to Greenup Inn..I was greeted by a very woman who was the managers wife. She told me pipes have been frozen, there is no heat and the sheets are not clean. I believe I was still in shock after sliding all over the highway, spinning around for a bit and being deposited in the middle of !-70. I just looked at her and said..you want me to pay $70 for a room with no heat, dirty sheets and pipes frozen? Her husband came in and said the pipes were unfrozen and water should be working now. He showed me the room and I stayed. It was COLD!
None of this was the fault of the managers. They had placed a space heater in the room to try and take the bitter cold out. If you sat right next to it you could stay a warm. Leave that space heater and brrrrrrrrr. The water did not seem to want to warm up that day, and taking a shower was a very short one. By the third morning I was able to take a shower with warm water. Yes, I was still stranded, as state patrol had put ban on tow trucks to be on the very unsafe highway. It was a mess.
The managers were very friendly and the second day clean sheets appeared. The first night I turned the sheets inside out and remade the bed. Second day managers wife brought the sheets to the door and we happily exchanged dirty for cleans. I made both the beds and tidied up the room. She also brought in toilet paper and soap. The winter storm I'm sure, with all the mess, pipes frozen, no heat in rooms, etc...had messed up their regular schedule of cleaning rooms, etc. They were working as hard as they could to make everyone as comfortable as possible.
The heat came on the third evening of being stranded. Yay!! Next morning taking a warm shower was not so bad. :)
This was an old hotel, clean rooms and very friendly managers who went out of to make everyone as comfortable as possible. Thank you!
