I do not have internet when traveling, and never know how far hubby will drive before we stop for the night, so can't pre-plan to avoid mistakes... like stopping and checking in at this hotel. I should have asked to see a room prior to paying for it...and I will not make that mistake again. I got fooled because the lobby was okay upon entering and the lady taking the reservation was very sweet and nice! And that was the only good thing I can say about this place.
As we carried our bags out of the lobby, the musty "old" nasty smell...and the stench of cigarettes became evident in the hallway, elevator, our second floor hallway, and in our room...#211. The carpets were shabby everywhere, stained, and not clean.
It got worse in the room. Everything is SHABBY...and I'm not talking shabby chic. I mean shabby and needs complete renovation and updating.
The comforters on our beds had huge circle stains. I mean HUGE...multiple circles of stains. Who did WHAT on that bed? It really had me creeped out. Whatever...it was, it was nasty looking. So bad, that I pulled it back to see if the sheets were like that also. They were not, but there was a piece of dried grass on my sheets. In the bluegrass state...do they leave bluegrass instead of mints on your bedding?
I continued to check the mattresses themselves for bedbugs after seeing all the stained carpeting and comforters. Didn't find any, and although the comforter was very stained, I did not notice an odor, so at least I felt like they had been washed/cleaned.
The carpets were so nasty....I left my flip flops on at all times. And although I am a bathtub person, this tub had such a black and nasty bottom, that I took a shower instead of a bath, and left my flip flops on during my shower.
The wireless internet was very slow.
They do serve a hot breakfast. I had the sausages and was sick afterward, but can't say for sure that was the reason.
This overnight experience cost us $89.28.....and I would have preferred to have slept in our loaded down car parked in a roadside park.
Guess it was an expensive lesson to learn. Our next stop, I asked to see the room we'd be staying in before paying. It was at the Drury Inn in another state, and I will always seek to find a Drury Inn when traveling now....because it was older...but NICE and CLEAN...well appointed. It also was not as expensive as what we paid at this hotel.
I see other reviews that rate this hotel much higher than I have. Maybe room 211 is the only funky room? I don't know. Just ask to see your room here before you pay because you may want to keep driving. Wish I had.
