This is the only hotel in my whole life--and I am in my 60's and travel all the time--that I had to leave before putting my luggage in the room. And I had driven 13 hours and was so tired I thought I could sleep anywhere.
But, on check in you'll see no smoking signs everywhere, but...then you'll see cigarette butts in the lobby in the halls in the rooms--and they are supposed to be CoVid clean.
So, right away you know all promises are suspect.
My room was disgusting. I went in w/ my own cleaning products but what can you do with burnt sheets and so much crud built up on light switches, etc, that you can't get them clean. There were holes in the carpets everywhere. It was HORRID.
Outside there was this big white thug that followed you around and radioed someone as you tried to move in. Then there was a big black pimp and a pretty, way too young girl, he was ordering around. She had on short shorts and a see through top.
Do you think this was a sign of prostitution on the premises? Do you think since I was well dressed driving a new SUV, that maybe I was being scoped out by the Hotel's BIG caucasian thug?
I don't know, but when I caught him lurking around me as I unloaded my luggage--and I was traveling alone--I went straight to my cell phone. In front of him I called the La Quinta and moved hotels.
I wonder what kind of scam I ruined for them. He seemed so disappointed, that I heard him radio someone to say I wasn't going to stay. Aaahhh shucks. One less theft for last night--for him to take a cut of.
The front desk was involved. They knew I was leaving before I drove back up to explain I was cancelling. So they were part of the circle.
WATCH OUT. This hotel is much worse than just filthy!
