On July 4th we checked into the Waimea lodge. We loved the location of the property. Once we opened the door to our room, we realized the room on the inside did not match the beautiful surrondings on the outside.
When we first walked into the room 119, immediately after opening the door, there was a very musty smell. We notice the carpet was dirty and sticky. The 2 chairs in the room were so full of stains that we did not even put our bags on them let alone sit on them. One of the beds had gecko droppings all over them. There was no knob on the fan broken. The bed was very very very lumpy. The outlet with the lamp plugged into it was loose so the light would flicker. The toilet paper holder hung by one screw on one side, which eventually broke off. The curtains were full of dust. Finally, we caught two moths flying around our room.
If it was any other weekend but the forth of July, I would have walked out and requested my reservations be cancelled immediately without any penalty. However since it was a holiday weekend and most places were booked, I knew we didn’t have much options.
