Wow. I was in Philly to interview for optometry school, and needed a hotel near the airport. Booked online for a cheap price. They have an airport shuttle, it is just too bad that is has the Quality Inn logo on it, and the driver never said anything, nor did the guy at the desk any of the 5 times I called. After waiting for 2 hours for a shuttle which didn't have the hotel's name on it I flagged a cab at 1:00am.
Got to the hotel, the guy behind the desk was a jerk. Not friendly, not helpful, just gave me a key. I unlocked "my" room, and began pushing the door open when the occupant of my room came at me with a knife, screaming profanities. After a minute of talking to the guy we both realized that I had awakened him because the creep at the front desk had given me an occupied room's key.
After trudging back down the stairs and around the building (doesn't feel safe at night) I went back into the office and heard, "What do you want now?" from the clerk. I told him what had happened, and he said, "Oh," gave me a different key and said "try this one."
Got to sleep at 4:30am after the adrenaline rush went down, up at 5:30 to get to the interview. Room was dirty, TV didn't work right, heater smelled like it was on fire. Room smelled of smoke, bed uncomfortable.
Other than that, it was great, as I got accepted into school.
