My boyfriend and I traveled from New Jersey to Florida in late December to early January. We mistakenly booked this dump as our hotel for on our way to Florida and for on our way back from Florida as a midway stop.
The first room we stayed in, the bathroom had so much hair in it I'm pretty sure you could have made a wig out of it. I counted exactly 15 hairs in there! The caulk around the toilet was peeling off. There was mold growing on various places in the bathroom.
The room and bed had random stains and smells and the mini fridge and microwave were sticky and unclean.
I hoped that our second night here (coming back from Florida) would be better. As soon as I went to the bathroom I knew that was not going to happen. This time I counted 9 hairs (of various lengths, sizes, and colors). There were small brown stains on the door. The towels, some of which had stains, smelled as if they hadn't been washed, just thrown in the dryer.
The microwave had the same stickiness as the one in the previous room, the mirrors has fingerprints, there was dust and dirt on the tables.
It's not about this place being outdated as fixtures can be 100 years old and clean. It's about this place being very dirty. As a customer if I can see the hair, stains, fingerprints, dirt, and stickiness, so should the hotel staff.
Lastly, as an IHG member with over 15,000 points, this is not the kind of experience I would expect from any Holiday Inn. On our next trip to Florida, we will be staying somewhere else.
