First, let me qualify my statements by saying that I am retired from the hospitality industry, specifically in Hotels, after 35 years. The room greeted us with the impression of someone laying on the bed, and a broken security lock on the door. This makes the room UNRENTABLE. My wife found pubic hairs abundantly woven into the blanket, carpet & baseboards. The upholstery on the chairs had such bad staining that we had to cover them with towels just so we could sit. The headboard had either collected human oils from hair, grime over the years, I didnâ??t want to know what it was. The bed was half way made, so we had to make the bed . The bathroom sink was cracked and the vent was filthy. We had to make a special trip to the grocery store in order to buy a can of Lysol- which my wife emptied in an attempt to make the room feel at least somewhat clean. With the heat, we needed to keep the window open and the fan pulling cooler air in. This worked well until we discovered that cigar smoke from the courtyard was sucked into the room. So much for a smoke-free room. OLD dirt was everywhere: elevator, stairwell, hallways, and floorboards in room . The dust on top of the glass display case next to the front desk was 1â? thick. The stairwells have decades of old dirt and stains on the carpet. The public restroom by the front desk was â??no better than a rest stop restroom on the interstate: dirty counters, floors, overflowing trashcansâ?. The furniture in the room reminded me of the prostitute motels in a large city. The entire Hotel is substandard for a Motel 6 let alone a â??Hotel of your supposed caliberâ?.
