Wet Carpet Smell
Posted Oct 23, 2016
On the plus side, everyone was pleasant and my check-in fast The room was ok for the price and very convenient to the event I was attending. On the minus side, as soon as I opened the door the smell of wet carpet hit you in the face. I went to open the patio slider and screen, which would have been fine to air out the room, but there was no way to lock the screen and it opened right onto the parking lot/driveway. The A/C was on and that helped somewhat. The weird thing was, they had apparently had only washed a small portion of the carpet between the door and the credenza. Each time I walked from the entry area to the bed, I felt wet carpet. I finally put a pair of shoes where the spot was to make sure I did not step in the wet area the rest of my stay. The free buffet breakfast was ok, but with so many people and being free, it was pretty hectic, kind of like swarming bees. As I was leaving, I made a special stop at the front desk to let them know about the smelly room I had been given, the fellow at the desk said he would tell someone. Hopefully the next guest did not have to endure the wet carpet as well. Overall, my stay was ok, would I stay there again, yes probably because the price fit my budget for an overnight stay. On a really nice note, I got a call from them after I'd been gone over and hour and someone had found one of my credit cards in the parking lot, they called to let me know and are mailing the card back.
