This was my first trip to Oregon. Ever since I watched the Goonies as a child I've wanted to visit. I finally did it! I booked my trip and left the husband and dog back in Chicago. I flew into Portland, rented a car and drove to Oceanside. I stayed in a beautiful little B&B there that surpassed my expectations. The next two nights I spent at another great place in Cannon Beach. My trip was going perfectly. I was amazed at how everything was falling into place.
Day 4 in Oregon found me at a spa for a few hours in downtown Portland before continuing on to the Days Inn in Gresham. I was on cloud 9. Then the storm struck as I arrived. I had to sit in my car for 20 minutes and wait for the rain to stop because staff members had their cars parked in the sheltered pull-up area for guests! I enter the building to an offensive B.O. smell in the tiny security vestibule that no longer gets used.
I was greeted by two teenaged girls. One of them clearly had no business being behind the counter. I think she was a friend of the actual employee just hanging out on the internet. The true employee checked me in and told me to take the STAIRS up to the second floor. UGH. I did . . . I lugged my bags up to the second floor and entered room 231. Wow! I've never experienced such a nasty hotel. The toilet seat was literally rotting . . . it had white missing in roughly 23 spots. Nasty. The air unit hadn't been wiped down in YEARS!!!! The walls had black, brown and red marks at every glance.
The fitness center is a joke! It is a 15x8 room with no air, a rotting door and 3 pieces of equipment piled on top of one another from the 80's. No joke. The pool and hot tub . . . ewwww. When you can see green on the bottom I think it's a sign to stay away!!!
I called Orbitz to tell them to take this hotel off their offering plate. They called the hotel and they've put me in a better room. The toilet seat is actually white now and the air unit is newer and therefore, less grimey.
Don't say you weren't warned. So much for a perfect vacay!
