We had placed reservations for two rooms through AARP. When I drove in, I had a strange feeling about the place. I opened the car door to hear very loud music nearby. We were with our daughters. One room was placed in the front of the hotel and the other was placed in the seedy back of the hotel, with the loud music playing over the fence. The clerk would not budge about changing rooms and I lost my cool about the loud music. The music stopped after 10:00 PM. It was too late to go elsewhere, so my wife and I took the back room and gave our daughters the front room. Needless to say, both rooms were a disgrace. Burn holes in mattresses, stains, on mattress and carpet and that heavy negative smell. We slept on top of the covers, in our clothing and kept in touch with our kids as needed. The hotel could not provide our daughter's room with sufficient towels and pillows. One look at the overall hygiene of the place and the poor quality, very limited breakfast and we decided to skip the breakfast and go to a nearby restaurant. We checked out as quickly as possible, never to return again. AARP and Econo Lodge have been contacted. Where is corporate quality control? What about the local health department? I hope the rest of Malden functions better than this!
