I have very little standards for a hotel room, but this experience was one beyond "standards." I traveled with my colleagues to a science conference at Penn State. We needed convenience so we chose the nearby Super 8. Our stay was all but convenient, however. While the location was great (a Perkin's is right across the parking lot), the hotel itself was a disaster. We arrived at the hotel past our check-in time, but it looked as though the rooms weren't even cleaned during the enormous block of time that the staff had to do so. Our first realization was that the carpets were stained and filthy. There was also dust, dirt, and some sort of "cracker debris" scattered over what they call a coffee table. We pulled back the covers of the bed, only to find 8+ black hairs stationed throughout the sheets, and black marks all over the pillowcases. This catastrophe was all set in a dimly lit, sour milk-smelling room, with a bathroom that had bodily fluid stains on the toilet seat (I won't go into detail). By this point, we were less than thrilled about the cleanliness. We rode the wonderful rickety (and wooden?) elevator down to the lobby, and politely requested a brief cleaning of the room. The lobby attendant was the only worker on duty, and handed us a washcloth and "all purpose cleaning spray." It's safe to say that this "8" is anything but super.
