I needed an emergency stay as the hotel i originally booked was over booked and at 3am i had nowhere to go. Booked this hotel on Expedia and when i arrived the hotel was closed with a notice on the door saying due to covid 19 they could no longer stay in business. That if I walked down the street to another property they might help. *might help* nice.... its now 4am.... and I've just flown in and I'm exhausted. I walk myself over to this sister property called 29 something. And there is no one there. Their front door glass is smashed and a note saying to call a number.... 30 min later and 3 calls later someone finally arrives at the door to tell me no room. I attempt to call Expedia but halfway through my call got disconnected. So they dude finds me a basement room. The smell of wet mould is terrible. It actually smells like cat urine. The walls are black with mould and my room has so mych water damnage and is leaking. $179 for this ...... its now 430am . The original room was to provide breakfast but there was no breakfast. I asked if I could check out later instead... i was told there was a £20 charge... even after all the hassle. I travel a lot.... like a lot a lot and I've never actually complained about a stay before. Thats how horrendous this was. Then entire experience was brutal start to finish. I work for cruise ships and I've been to hotels all over the world. Some hostles and some very questionable places. But this was the worst stay
