We were traveling, all other hotels were booked, and needed to sleep or we would have checked right back out. There was a sign that said the hotel was under new management. The people who bought it REALLY need to fix it or condemn it.
SMELL--The room had a horrible moldy smell and it didn't evaporate as time went on. PAINT--Whoever painted this hotel never painted before. Ridiculous. However, if the room smelled NORMAL and the room appeared safe (more below) it would have just been funny.
After the initial smell (which never left) hit our nostrils, we tried to hit the lights. Most didn't work. Now we're in a dark, smelly room. This was a room in which we didn't want to take our shoes off because we didn't know how dirty the floor was.
BLACK MOLD! Next morning, we wanted to escape asap, so we hurried and showered. (although we wouldn't have used the separate tub anyway, there was a nice size bug crawling around in it).
My shower time had to be a personal record, for as soon as I entered, I looked up and the ceiling was covered with black mold. Now I knew where the smell of the room was coming from. The owners tried to cover it with paint. One cannot cover dangerous black mold with paint. Our daughter moved into an new, very expensive, apartment building in TX. A few months later, the entire complex was forced to evacuate and the building torn down because of Toxic black mold. She had a heck of a time finding another apartment because people were afraid she would carry the spores with her to their apartment complex.
Of course, I couldn't test that mold to see if it were the Toxic Black Mold, but there is a problem in this hotel and the management has NOT taken care of it.
If the hotel ratings had a "below terrible" marking, I would have used it.
