Wadded up toilet paper in the door's peephole.
Posted Nov 17, 2016
I arrived late Monday night from a long trip and upon arriving I noticed that the lobby doors were locked. There was a window I had to speak through and a doorbell I had to push to get the receptionist's attention.
I asked for directions to my room but the receptionist had a very poor grasp of the English language and could not tell me clearly.
My room was filthy, I could tell the sheets were not clean, the fridge-top was covered in coffee that had spilled and just dried like that. There was a rolled up wad of toilet paper blocking the peephole (I assume a fugitive from justice had been there the night before... or weeks before, depending on when they clean).
The bed had seen better days, the whole time I slept on it I was afraid of contracting some awful disease. It was nighttime and there was only one Indian lady on the clock behind a glass window to complain to, so it would have been of no use to complain.
The internet was the worst, I only got good signal in the lobby. I assumed checkout was at noon (as it is in most hotels) because the Indian lady who gave me my key-card didn't tell me what time it was. At 11:30 the door to my room busted open with no knock at all and the cleaning lady told me checkout was at 11. This was embarrassing.
