I was in town visiting my father who was in the hospital which was close by. There were 3 of us women, including myself. We checked in, went to our room, which had the strangest entry way. We could not access the room from the outside at first. Had to enter through an enclosed foyer, then use the card to get into the room from the inside foyer. The room had two doors: one entry from the enclosed foyer and another entry that went outside to our car in the parking lot. The parking area was very dark and spooky, and above all, it was very secluded from the main road; it had no street light poles. After getting into our room, we left and went back to the hospital then when we returned, we couldn't get into our room from the outside entry. The card wouldn't work! Maintenance man tried and tried to get door open, but was unsuccessful. He kicked at the door numerous times. It was odd; as if someone or something was inside our room holding the door so it wouldn't open. He went around to the foyer entry twice, asking me to follow and I did not. The second time he went into the foyer, he somehow made it into our room. When he opened the door to the outside where we were waiting, there was another man in our room. Out of the blue, two other men appeared out of no where? I quickly went into the room and grabbed my belongings and got the heck out of there. Then when I went back to the front desk at the lobby to get my money back, two of the four men were sitting in the lobby. One of the men cussed at us. To make a long story short, we have every reason to believe that this is a "shady" place---perhaps prostitution, drugs, etc.? This place also is located in the crappy part of town and was the creepiest place ever. We truly believe that we were being set-up for something and about to be mugged, raped, murdered or something of the sort! Was a VERY scary experience!!!!
