I stayed one night at this hotel, my children and I were in town for a wedding. I was highly disappointed in the accommodations, I've had more appealing stays for $29.99 at the Motel 6. First, whoever was responsible for cleaning the room after the previous occupant left Cheetos alongside the bed closest to the wall. I would have assumed my children simply dropped a snack if we had actually brought any food into the room that evening. It wasn't until the next morning I noticed the dark spots staining the carpet near the bathroom as well as the light splatters of red along the bathtub wall and shower curtain. I am hoping those are the result of a former occupant who decided to dye her hair a dark red and not the result of some sort of previous bloodshed. The fact that the shower curtain has an extremely faded logo from an entirely different hotel is almost comical, but in reality is just a show to how little someone cares about the details of their hotel. I believe you can still get shower curtains at Dollar Tree for $1 each, and they would appear much cleaner. The coating around the shower rod has deteriorated so much that the rod was rusted and therefore I absolutely could not hang my towel there while showering. In addition to all these things there were broken floor tiles around the toilet and I felt compelled to make sure the floor mat was placed over these before allowing my toddler to use the potty for fear she would cut her foot.
In addition to all these things, the offered continental breakfast was like none other I have ever seen. It is completely unsanitary to provide one container of cream cheese to be used between all guests, who knows if someones child scoops the contents out with their hands before putting it back. There were no offerings of even poor quality fruit which I believe is standard among even low quality hotel chains. The orange juice offered was like a horrible knockoff of Tang, I took one sip and felt I was going to be nauseous. There really are no words to describe my level of disbelief and disappointment.
I will say, however, I was beyond pleased with the staff. The gentlemen working during check-in and check-out were extremely friendly.
