Skip the Alpha Inn and Suites, it's a dump
Posted Oct 6, 2016
This was my first dumpy hotel. First when trying to make the reservation, they did not answer their phone, so I did it online (I prefer the phone!) I tried 3 separate times over a period of a couple of hours for them to answer. When we arrived we called (they answered) and we asked about their free parking and how to get to their lot. The man replied "First Come, first Served" and hung up. There are 27 units and 16 super skinny spaces, always filled. Had to find our own street parking. Next, the front door is locked (it's only 8pm) we buzzed, and buzzed again, finally the door clicks, and we enter the lobby. We are given our room key cards and the wifi password, after quite a few forms (seemed more than usual) Now for the room...we passed by the "heated pool" tiny, and but filled with water, but unfortunately a big CLOSED sign on the gate.
The room, upstairs, on some quite rickety cement stairs, Room was fine, floor looked a little dirty. Looked freshly painted, not bad. Now for the scary part, the bathroom. Black mold growing up the wall behind the toilet. The towel bar, was only partially there, the rack that held the towels was pulling out of the wall and was nearly hanging. The grout around the tiles in the tub, also moldy. Towels, were small, skimpy and rough.the bar that held the shower curtain was rusty. One light fixture didnt work, but it was rusty as well. The light fixture that did work had dead bugs in the glass globe. Sheets - flats, no fitted. No mattress pads
