Whilst checking in we overheard another group complain to hotel staff that a random man has entered the hotel and kicked down their door and came in their room.
Nervously we finish off check in and head up to our room which we were greeted by a very sad and empty looking room. The bathroom I could say was bigger than our sleeping area. With empty bedsides, no door to the hanging closet and only a tiny little lamp on the other side of the room as our main source of light.
We then test out our bed as anyone does at any hotel, hoping for at least a comfortable bed to sleep in, to only find that i almost rolled straight off the bed as a handful of springs had broken on the bottom left hand side, which if you were stripping and making the bed every day, you would of definitely noticed as you can see the mattress was lopsided even with a blanket on it. Sleeping on a complete slant for two nights was an experience.
We tried our best to not let any of this hinder our trip down to Birmingham but the paper thin door making us to believe that every single person that came back drunk and walked through the hallway, had a conversation right inside our room, keeping us up most of the night until the sun started rising.
Aside from the weird damp smell throughout the hallway to our room, our broken bathroom lock and some flimsy plastic cups that were provided in the room (which weren’t replaced after use), safe to say we made it out there .. safely.
