I was expecting a certain minimal level of comfort - a clean room and an edible breakfast and on my way. I have stayed in a number of Holiday Inn Express locations and they are what they are, but this place was a horror story. The young woman who checked me in at 11:00 PM was a delight: warm, friendly, welcoming, and helpful. So far so good. A sandwich and a soda from the Subway that she warned me NOT to walk to, due to homeless people in the woods. It's really close by, so I'd have been tempted to walk. The room was shabby, but clean, and I was pretty tired, so sleeping would not be a problem even if there were noise from the huge truck stop (which there was not). Complaints? 1) Who puts a sheer curtain in a window on the FIRST FLOOR of a hotel? - no way to fully close the drapes, so I had to try to sleep a few feet away from a window that anyone passing by could easily have peeped into. REALLY BAD IDEA, folks. 2) On my way out the door early in the morning, I grabbed a cup of decaf under the watchful eye of "grumpy grandma," ate a half bagel, and took my morning meds and vitamins with a container of skim milk I took from the guest breakfast fridge. I popped the pills into my mouth, took a gulp of the milk and, too late realized that the milk was spoiled. How disgusting is that? How much trouble could it possibly be to check the expiration date on the cartons of milk? I told myself to swallow, because I couldn't afford to spit out my medication. UGH. I poured the remaining milk into the sink and watched in horror as the clumps of old, congealed sour milk plopped out of the container. This is not an experience I will ever repeat.
