I was another victim of an American Airlines delay that got stuck at this hotel. My wife and I got in about 1am on a Saturday night. Upon arriving on the shuttle, which was a recycled family van and showed it, we found there were no signs even showing the hotel was a hotel. The area the property was in was a place I would never have driven through on my own at 1am.
The front desk clerk was nice and helpful. Upon going to our room we had to walk through 3 different hallways, each of which had it's own unique awful smell. Upon getting to our room we found it to be far less than quality. We found burn marks in the carpet. There were paint marks on the walls where rather than repainting the whole room they had just painted small spaces. There were GANG SIGNS written on the ceiling in pen.
The bathroom was very old and disgusting. There were cobwebs hanging from the ceiling. The shower faucet constantly leaked. The floor was sticky. The towels were stained. I tried to take a towel off the towel rack and the whole thing came out of the wall. The caulking on the bathtub was disgusting. Needless to say we never took off our socks or showered.
We checked the bed and didn't see any bedbugs but I wouldn't be suprised if they were there. The bed had urine stains all over it.
We were only there for a total of about 4 hrs. My wife barely slept because she was so freaked out about the room.
Upon catching the shuttle back to the hotel we got on the old Dodge Caravan. We made it about 3/4 way back to Ohare when the transmission went out leaving us stranded on the interstate. Thankfully we left plenty early and didn't miss our flight.
American Airlines will be hearing about our horrible experience. This came after an 8 hr flight that took off after a 13 hr delay.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel to my worst enemy.
