On a return trip from Colorado to Nebraska, we decided to find a room for the night. It was 830 PM and we had a three year old and a one and a half year old that needed to get a real nights sleep.
We exited at the first "group" of hotels that we came across. The sign out front of the Quality Inn said "Free Hot Breakfast." That got us. We pulled in and I inquired about a room. The friendly front desk girl informed me that they had one room left, and even gave me a discounted rate.
The hotel lobby was nice and presentable. I didn't think that this would be the beginning of my nightmare.
We unloaded the family and began the trek up to our room. We stayed in room 210. This meant we had to take the elevator. I may have said a few Hail Marys as the ancient, dilapidated elevator made its clunky, journey to the second floor.
The elevator approached the second floor and the door opened, while the elevator was still making it's final 1 foot journey.
The hallway wasn't all that bad, except for the dirty carpet, and portions of the ceiling falling down.
The room was normal sized with normal hotel room stuff. The carpet was "don't take your shoes off.... ever." dirty. It seemed to ooze filth with every footstep. The the shower was tile, complete with moldy grout. The caulking around the tub was more mold than caulk. It was unbelievably disgusting.
The shower handle was no longer attached to the valve, and came off when I turned it on.
The heat/ac unit was noisy, and had a good amount of mouse/rat feces in the air outlet vents.
At this point, I was ready to just leave. We decided that since we had the kids, and they were ready for bed, we would just sleep in the beds and leave the minute they woke up.
The mattresses were actually pretty clean. I checked for bugs, and didn't find any.
We got one night of horrible sleep and, like we agreed to, left the minute the kids woke up.
We decided that we didn't want to take the chance and eat the "hot breakfast" that lured into this hell-hole. We were afraid that the kitchen might be the same way as the rest of the hotel.
Bottom line: If you find yourself in Nebraska, in a blizzard, and your car is broken down, and you lost your shoes, and you haven't eaten in a week, and you have a free pass to stay at this Quality Inn, DON'T DO IT. You've been warned.
Oh yeah, the Adult Novelty store next door to the hotel should have been a warning... .Never saw it on the way in... but it stood like a erect rocket on the way out.
