Someone posted this was a newer hotel but I find that hard to believe as our room was smelly and kind of nasty. The tub was gross...not dirty but just old and needed replacing. The bathroom area was all pretty gross and old and worn out. We've stayed in a lot of Holiday Inn Expresses and have never been disappointed. This one was exceptionally skanky.
The housekeeping staff also kept pounding on the door trying to wake us up so they could get in and clean the room. Scuse me, but after the guest says "no thank you" three different times, don't you just go away and stop waking your guests up? No such luck. Three door wake ups were followed by the phone calls. Too tired to get up for the phone we just pulled the pillows over our heads. But by the 3rd or 4th phone call, we gave up and told the person on the phone to stop bothering us. Honestly folks, use your common sense: if your guest wants their room cleaned they're going to let you in to clean it. If sleep is more important, they won't let you in to clean it. But the thing you need to get is that housekeeping exists to convenience the guests, not the other way around. Gah.
I personally can't stand Super 8 for the most part, but my husband is from Kirksville so we visit back home quite often. I shudder at the thought, but I guess we're Super 8 guests from now on.
WHY can't someone build a decent motel in this town? Or in the case of the Holiday Inn Express, at least bring the hotel up to corporate standards?
