12/30/2012 Kokomo Indiana, Garden Inn and Suites.
Don't make the same mistake that we did. At check in, we asked if they had WIFI in the rooms. We were assured that they did. When we could not connect, we were first told there was no one available to fix it. Upon returning to our room later in the day, we found a note taped on our door. "There is NO PROBLEM with the WIFI in Room (number). When we could not connect , we were then told that there "must be too many people using it right now". There were only 3 cars in the parking lot. How many guests could there be at that time?. Later we were told that no one currently at the motel could fix the WIFI. "It may be fixed by 11 a.m. tomorrow". was the reply this time.
Some tips to follow if you stay here. Our sheets were not changed during the weekend even after I told the front desk that Pop had been spilled on them.So bring your own sheets in case you need clean ones. Bring your own blanket. They do not provide any. Bring extra towels. You get only one set per room and there were two of us. We did get two washcloths. Be careful in the bathroom. Our toilet was so loose that we had to carefully sit and still it rocked. We could not use the grab bar to steady ourselves as it was hanging loose out of the wall. When we requested a different room, we were told there was a 20 dollar moving charge. It was after the fifteen minute limit for refunds. Bring your own kleenex tissue. The holder had none and when we asked for some at the front desk, we were told. "we don't have any. Use toilet paper. Over the entire weekend the room was not vacuumed. There was no pen and paper in the room. We asked about that. We were giving a sheet of paper 8 1/2 by 11 and told that the motel did not have any pens.
The donuts provided for the continental breakfast was the only choice and they looked bad. This from a person who until now has never met a donut they didn't like. We ate out.
They had a sign prominently displayed at the front desk. "No refunds after 15 minutes after check in". I did not realize that was a warning. At check in I just thought it odd.
If this is not the worst motel accommodation in our travel life, it is definitely in the top two. I would never recommend this place to any one. In fact if I learned that someone we know was going to Kokomo, IN, we would warn them away from it in advance. It is too bad because the outside and entry room was attractive although the front desk area was untidy and cluttered.
