When I first arrived here, the man who barely spoke English and barely understood English stuck me in a room that was freshly painted and the paint fumes were giving me a headache. I'm not one to complain, but I had to get my room switched. It was a strong odor. When I went back to the front desk, that same man was texting on his phone and ignoring me. After me standing there a good minute and a half, he stopped texting and started walking away! I said "excuse me" and he looked back and said "what?". When I explained carefully (since he barely understood what I was saying) that I need a room that wasn't freshly painted, he acted confused and said every room in the hotel smells like paint. I looked at him (now getting a little annoyed) and said "Really? EVERY SINGLE ROOM has been painted at once?!" and at that point he said a couple things I didn't understand and then told me that all the upstairs rooms hadn't been painted. He tried to charge me more for one of those rooms, but I wasn't having it. Keeping people in a room with that strong of paint fumes is a violation of health. My new room had mold stains in the shower and the carpet was disgusting. I stayed here 2 nights because of the price and AAA discount, but I'd honestly rather just pay more somewhere else.
