I've booked through Expedia for years, have never come across accommodations such as these and am genuinely wondering if Expedia screens the hotels they represent?
- This facility is used by drug dealers and users, constant activity in the parking lot, streams of traffic to and from rooms including people arriving in taxis
- Signs posted everywhere warning you not to leave valuables in your vehicle
- Office and surrounds are under 24/7 video surveillance
- Big yellow metal encased phone on the outside wall of the office specifically to call 911
- Two peep holes in the doors to the rooms, one at face level, one at waist level.
Booked/paid for a non-smoking room with double bed, was told upon arrival that my Expedia booking was a smoking, queen bed, accessible room. No other rooms available, so decided to inspect the room to see if it would work for my son and I (we were on a big road trip and had slept in the van and our tent, and just wanted a bed, hot shower, and wifi). At a quick glance, smell wasn't too horrific, and the room was located away from the main through-fare, so I accepted it.
- Faux wooden floors were sticky, left black residue on our bare feet so we wore shoes at all times
- Doors/walls/TV remote were filthy/sticky
- Microwave was broken
- Only one set of towels (washcloth, hand towel, bath towel - dirty with hair and black smears), was told no more towels as dryer was broken
- No coffee maker or shampoo, no breakfast or coffee offered
*DO NOT stay here*
