Where do I begin? I knew immediately when I got to the room that this was going to an interesting stay - the air conditioning wasn't working. No AC in Austin = Bad Idea. They switched me to a new room where the AC was working, but things did not improve.
Dirty, stained carpet. A decent TV, but no channel listing and only a handful of basic channels. Rust stains in the bathtub. What looked like mildew on the tiles in the bathroom. Shower would only get luke-warm, no adjustment could get it any hotter, while water in the sink was immediately hot - strange. 1970's vintage shower head.
No water glasses in the room, but I had a water bottle with me so I thought I'd refill it from the drinking fountain in the lobby. No luck - the drinking fountain was bone dry.
Unfortunately, I was in town on business, the company was paying for the room, and I did not have a car. Otherwise, I would have left immediately for any of the dozen other nearby hotels.More
