DO NOT STAY AT THIS SO CALLED "HOTEL/RESORT..."
We decided to stay at the Rot-wood resort due to the proximity to the PEEC. A friend was having their reception at the PEEC.. I've stayed at a lot of hotels around the world, from 5star to 2 star, given the location, my expectations were ultra low.. our main concern was a clean room........
Driving by the location I thought it seemed acceptable... i should have recognized this place was a complete sheet-hole.. We had a few issues.... Prior to making the reservation, we had requested early check-in of 12pm, it was conveyed to me this would be a non-issue.. Front desk mentioned we should call the day of to ensure the room was available.. Call was made the morning of our travels, and the woman on the other line indicated to checkin @ 12 would require us to pay for an additional night... Como se dice bull-sheet... I requested to speak to the supervisor, and he was very cordial and accommodating... we were permitted early checkin..
Upon entering our room, it was as though I had traveled back to the 1980s... the room adjacent to us had their door kicked in.... and the room was either being renovated or trashed... Given the condition of the room was mediocre, at best.... we requested to change it to one of the Tree Top villas across the street....
Woman at the front desk informed me explicitly villas were unavailable for this weekend and it was also 239 per night.. she said i could try speaking to the reservation dept.. I called and the woman in their reservation group indicated rooms were unavailable due to an event taking place.... I'm not really someone that likes to hear the answer - NO...... So I decided to make a couple of calls... long story short, a villa was made available to us for 139 per night... The funny thing was, they told everyone villas were unavailable.. that being said, throughout our stay, we noticed most of the parking lots were empty... SUSPECT...
At this point, we were relatively satisfied... Knowing the villas appeared cleaner.... we had picked up a few snacks during our travel, and one night i must have dropped a dorito chip on the floor prior to sleeping....
When I awoke the following morning, i saw what resembled the chip, except it appeared to be all black.... i thought perhaps doritos have a very short shelf life or some sort of GMO had affected it... Anyways, as I walked closer I realized the dorito chip I dropped was completely covered with Ants.... Ants were everywhere... All the ants in PA decided to make a pilgrimage to eat the one and only available dorito in PA....
There is only one time in my life where I have seen something like that and this is when I visited a developing/third world country!! I never expected to see this in PA!!
Note - photo attached below.
In Conclusion - if health, cleanliness, bug free/well maintained rooms are priorities, keep driving to the Holiday Inn.... or better yet, sleep in ur vehicle, pitch a tent... and take a shower in a lake....
