I travel a lot on business and am not a difficult customer. I used to work in remote oilfields - so have I stayed in some rough places. I never ever experienced a place like this.
The exterior is ragged. The lobby is old and tired. When I arrived, there was nobody at the front desk for a very long time and I was locked out, waiting on the street. The elevator was scary, rickety, dirty and damaged. My room was extremely hot and smelled rancid. I investigated to find the smell - the bottom of the shower was covered with thick, slimy black mold. The bed sheets had stains. I was able to remove the stains with a damp cloth, proving that the sheets weren't washed after the previous guest(s) deposited the stains. I discovered all this in the first 30 minutes! I could go on, but why bother.
Please, trust me on this, don’t stay at the George Washington Hotel in Washington, Pa. Like the Titanic, it was once grand.
