I stayed 5/1-5/4. From out of town there for scheduled job interviews in area. Checked in and immediately smelled ‘syrup’ coming off the elevator. In room, lock on door missing, iron missing, bathroom reeked of urine, wallpaper behind the bathroom door coming off wall. Pick up toilet seat and you can see old, dried up piss in the crevices showing these toilets ARE NOT steamed clean or whatever and aren’t properly sanitized. The towels and washcloths are rough to touch, I wonder if they use any kind of fabric softener, doubt it though. One of the beds had a tired looking down comforter had a huge yellow stain on it, and when you turned it back, there was a disgusting piece of bloody human excretion! I called the desk and I had to go down for a blanket bc it was around 10 pm, So I go downstairs and receive a thin blanket bc the linen closet is locked and I was annoyed to say the least. I told the clerk I was disappointed, my room smelled like pee and I was there with my daughter who is 7 mos pregnant and my five yr old grandson. I told them I wasn’t going to complain bc I didn’t want the cops called and somehow I end up in jail, but I was going to buy products to sterilize the bthrm the next day. She offered to put me in a different room so I said yes of course. The room was on the same floor and was in better shape than the other one. The bathroom still smelled of urine, but cosmetically looked better. The carpets are in dire need of burning, cleaning as an option went out the window a long time ago. It was an extended stay, which was nice but the ‘white’ fridge wasn’t clean on the outside and the handle was missing, leaving a piece of sharp plastic able to scratch you. The pool is outdated and in dire need of upgrading with some safety efforts put in place. My grandson got but in the face, and my daughter ended up sick from the unsanitary and unacceptable conditions. The staff weren’t polite, but most never spoke as they passed you by, I informed the manager and since the staff were polite, she didn’t feel there was anything else wrong with that I told her about my experience staying at her hotel. No one should have to pay to stay in a place smelling like urine, stained sheets, missing safety features and complimentary appliances that aren’t there or working properly. The mgr said she had to speak to her staff about MY experience before she WOULD decide what type of compensation to give me, which today is day #2 and I’ve yet to hear back from her or see any monetary reversals to my cc used. If you are a clean person, this is NOT the place for you.
