B is for Bad Hotels!

We had a Reliv Road trip this past weekend! We laughed and laughed due to our "interesting" accommodations!! When my dear friend, Heather, came to the car with this light covered luggage cart - I said, "well, it has lights!" Heather commented, "well, we would need a long extension cord to enjoy them!"
So, if the cart didn't tip us off, the "newly remodeled room" that started with this paint job should have. Come on, ten minutes of sanding would have made a HUGE difference.

The Fairfield Inn by Marriot was mocking us from across the street!! For the same PRICE!! uuuurrrggghhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have no idea why we had a screen sitting in the corner of our room. Our windows had screens?

Yes, that IS dirt all over the air conditioner. It also kicked on cold air every 30 minutes all night long.

See that light shining thru the door connecting us to the adjoining room? We could also hear them run the water in their sink.

This is a cheeze it or something and other crumbs under mom's bed!

And just in case you are thinking it was ALL bad - look at our fabulous flat screen TV! Although we never even turned it on!! We had fun though, a girl trip with NO kids - that seldom happens. I hope I remember these fun trips with my mom and friends forever! In the big scheme of life a Bad hotel is not that big of a deal, but on the next road trip, we will ask a few more questions!!

Hope you didn't touch anything.

I'm guessing you're not headed back there any time soon!

I'm thinking of that song now by the Eagles.... "Welcome to the Hotel California" - I think that would've been better than this hotel!

Rosemarie said...

Oh - I am so sorry that I am laughing so hard. Been there! I would write a letter - I have a feeling (since you have pictures) you'll get some money back.

That was just great!

Jen - I touched everything!! :)

Ben - exactly right, I think I will go back and stay there like maybe...mmmm NEVER!!

Shelley - yea, maybe!!

Rose Marie - let's see, they said they could only discount it 15% because it was a newly remodeled room!!! can you imagine what the not newly remodeled room must look like????? I don't even want to imagine!

Ive actually stayed in worse. I think I've hit both ends of the continuum.

Good B. I mean bad B. Well you know what I mean;<) It has gotten to a point where if we find a hotel that is actually up to snuff we write a letter of appreciation. No joke.It's like WHERE are they finding their housekeepers? When I was a teenager I cleaned a doctor's office for my Dad and you could eat off the bathroom floor after I was done (EVEN then!!).

Oh how funny. It just makes you appreciate coming back home.
I could do an entire blog on bad hotel stays...
