I felt like I was in a movie where they over do things to make it look bad. This Place is Dump from the front desk to the rooms. You know you are in trouble when the have several signs posted saying NO Refunds and telling you to look at room first Hand written signs.
Ok here are the facts:
Parking lot has locals loitering in and around the cars,
The front desk has a huge piece of plywood unpainted just pushed up as one side of the desk.
The Desk is cluttered and the guy is watching TV which is sitting between you and him, He has to move his head so he can see you. Classy I know. THE TV is sitting on the Counter it's the first thing you see the back of the TV.
The Lobby is Huge Not sure why. Floors are dirty, trash not picked up just there on the lobby floor. Old food containers like cups throughout the Lobby. TV show must have been good because cleaning the lobby was a lower priority. I wanted to cancel Could not because I booked from their site and cancel policy needs to be 24 hours.
I Painfully give the TV watching Front Desk Clerk my Credit Card. No conversations just takes my card has me sign gives me room card. Says My room Number out loud for the rest in the Lobby to hear. BTW I'm so concerned now we are watching our credit card account daily because this place is so Sketch I'm concerned about it's security.
Got Really Lucky and parked my car in plain view of the Lobby with the wild assumption I'd get some safety from mister TV watcher. I know I know but somehow I felt like an edge over the others parked in the dark areas... Most of the parking lot.
My wife is such a trooper. She says ok we can handle it it's just one night.
Ok on the way to the room the hallways have an unusual amount of people hanging out in the hallway. Not sure if they were guests or not. CREEEPY. There is ZERO security at this place.
The door to the room fits sloppy giving you the feeling anyone could open or jiggle a door open. The inside lock is a crappy little chain. Yes you can turn the door nob lock . But that chain is such a feeling of security. No sign of that little flip device in every Hotel that helps secure the door.
Ok now we are in the room. Put Bags on bed. READ THIS. On the Picture Frame which is essentially the head board is two wads on chewed gum. It actually catches your eye. So the maid changing the bedding had to see it. it looks pretty old. I'm thinking others have left it like I did.. sorta as a warning sign to the next guest. We sleep on top of the bedding in our clothes because its so poorly run we just don't trust anything.
The Bathroom faucet barely lets water flow it sorta squirts in a high speed stream about the size of a pencil. or less. Splashes every where. I think the faucet screen is blocked and needs replaced that why it is such a small flow.
I live in he Northwest all of my life. I have never seen a cockroach before in Wa/Ore However this room comes complete with them YIPPIE.
This place is a DUMP. I will never stay here ever again. NOT Clean, NOT Safe, this place has ZERO sense of pride of ownership.
Hey Owner get off your but grab a trash bag and a broom walk the halls from time to time, GET that TV off the counter.
Hey Owner of this place Stay a few nights there your self. Better yet Invite your mom to stay there and then see what she says.
This place lacks any Pride. The ownership is plain LAZY.
This is part of a national chain. Why isn't the Chain management checking on this.
