Drive a few more miles.

When I arrived to check in, the manager assigned me to a room which was occupied by another guest. The original reservation was for a double bed, after entering the occupied room, I was reassigned to a room with two single beds.
I am a retired health department supervisor from a major tourist destination, so I may notice things an average member of the public would overlook. I don't thing the average person would overlook some of the issues I noticed. Here is a simplified list of some of the problems I observed: 1. There was an extreme amount of mold and algae in the toilet, 2. The tub drain cover was not attached and the drain had a buildup of hair and biofilm, 3. Light covers were missing and at least one lamp had a loose wire causing the light to randomly turn on and off, 4. The smoke detector was not functional, 5. No vent fan or window in the restroom, 6. Ceiling tiles which had been water stained had been painted rather than replaced, 7. The mattress had blood stains, 8. The carpet was excessively soiled and there was a great deal of plant debris in the margins, 9. Caulking in the bathroom was cracked and black- probably molded, 10. Security chain on the door did not have an attachment plate on the door, 11. Windows were excessively dirty with insect debris and spider webs.
