Not What I Expected
Posted Aug 13, 2016 on Orbitz
We arrived after midnight following a 5+ hour car ride. We found a "party" taking place in the pool (located at the front of the hotel, right in front of the main entrance); most hotels close their pools at 9:00PM or so. I had to make my way through a thick cloud of gnats and puddles of some kind of sticky liquid. When I went to the front desk, the light was out and there was no one anywhere to be found. I waited a minute or two before calling the hotel number from my cell. The phone rang and rang for about five minutes before someone FINALLY came from down the hall (taking a nap, maybe?). During the check-in she let me know that she doesn't usually work at that hotel (and...?).
Once we finally made it to our rooms, there was a lot of noise in the hallway (especially for that time of night). While unpacking my bag, I found a cockroach in the dresser drawer and a pool of water covering the bathroom floor. The toilet was extremely slow to flush, the linens were in relatively poor condition, and our second room smelled like mildew.
The rate was satisfactory, but then again, you get what you pay for.
