We wanted a room for one night while we visited the local beaches and this is all we could find at the price we could afford on our budget at last minute. First, once you arrive you can immediately tell that this is an older building in need of remodeling. We shrugged it off because we were tired from the trip and went to check in. I had booked the room at travelodge.com and was just glad to have a place to rest. The person behind the desk looked like Shaggy from Scooby Doo and acted as if he didn't know what he was doing or was probably high, who knows? He kept saying "groovy,man". Anyway, we were given our key cards and went to room 118. Once inside, first thing we noticed was a HUGE moth on the window curtain. We had to kill it because it refused to move, looked as though it was at home. Second thing we noticed was the musty smell. Then we found some rather mysterious sticky spots on the carpet. We immediately heard this annoying beeping sound and soon discovered that the microwave was stuck on the number 1 and you couldn't get it to stop beeping so we unplugged it. The ice machine was on the other side of the building and it was VERY NASTY!! The small refrigerator was a joke! There wasn't a control knob inside and it took forever to get cold. The bathroom area was a little small but it was adequate for our one night stay. The shower pressure was really good. The telephone was located on top of the little stand where the refrigerator and microwave was and was unplugged. We ordered pizza for supper and had to plug it in to call for the delivery. The remote for the television had to be shaken to get it to work, but once on the tv had good channels and reception. The wireless internet was very spotty. It came a downpour and the parking lot flooded rather quickly. It was rather noisy all around us but thank goodness we were so tired by the time we went to bed. Thank goodness for the earplugs I packed!! The next morning we went to the office to check out. Shaggy wasn't there but was replaced by what seemed to be a man of Middle-eastern or Indian descent. He was so busy chatting it up with two women in there, he hardly noticed me turning in the keycards. The "Bear Bites" breakfast area is very small and there was cereal, apple and orange juice, milk, and danishes. The danishes we had were so stale and the only thing that was good was the juice. We then hurried up out of there!! I will NEVER go there again! If we hadn't been so weary from the trip, we would have demanded a refund and slept in the car. I had never stayed on Market Street in Wilmington before and in places it looked very seedy and unsafe. I hope the other local motels are better than this!
