Cockroaches the size of my thumb!
Posted Aug 10, 2016
I checked a number of reviews of this hotel before deciding to book here (not many to choose from in Laurens, SC) and most reviewers said it was an older hotel, but clean. I decided to take a chance. When I checked into my room, there was a solvent smell in the room, which might have been insecticide. There was a wet spot in the new carpet, right in front of the TV. The air conditioner was noisy, but the room seemed clean. I was awakened at 2:30 a.m. by a roach the size of my thumb crawling across my forehead! Needless to say I was unable to go back to sleep and spent the rest of the night trying to catch the bug. I eventually did get him and left him in a glass on the sink counter for housekeeping. I checked out that morning rather than stay the second night, which I had already paid for. The adage about getting what you pay for is true. I should have known that the hotel would have been this sort of place based on what I was paying for the room.
