Myself and a college were booked in to this “hotel” for two nights.
When we arrived around 7:30pm ish the manager told me twice we were late
The were shown to our rooms which were dingy and small. One lady who was sat in the lounge area in her Dressing gown and high heeled shoes. That night I slept with the chair behind the door as didn’t feel comfortable - the manager gave me the creeps.
The next morning went for breaks fast. I was “told off” for putting my used teaspoon on he paper napkins as I had now spiked it and there was a small tray to put my spoon on. The manager also wasn’t happy when myself and college said we would not be eating breakfast and appeared to be annoyed he had to get up. When he asked if it would be the same the following morning we said yes.
We then left as we were doing training in the area. We contacted our finance team at work and requested a different hotel as we did not feel safe in this one. Whilst on training , other people there said that this hotel was also a hostel for recently realised convicts and also had problems with drugs.
Safe to say we checked out a day early and we are now in a decent hotel across the road.
If you want cheap, tacky, unsafe then this is the hotel for you.
