I was visiting Buenos Aires with my family. We decided to get out of the big city and go to Mar Del Plata on New Year's Eve. We were browsing online, and this was the only hotel that was available at the time. When we first arrived, the hotel looked slightly like a motel 6. The reception was very disappointing and rude. We obtained our room key an hour after checking in. We all had to walk around with our luggage to the other entrance of the hotel, which was located on a dark and filthy side street. On the side street, just as we were about to enter the building, a strange young man approached us. He pulled out a weapon and demanded for our money. After we handed around 600$ US cash, he vanished into the darkness. Already having been shocked, we entered our room, where we felt like we were robbed a second time...On one side, there was a closet full of the maid's supplies. To the back right, there was a full size bed. To the back left, there were three twin prison-looking cots. We were astonished. We were traveling with 5 people in total; 4 adults and one teenager. A member of my family is kind of a clean freak. She was checking the entire room to make sure it was spotless. Suddenly, she saw a brownish-greenish substance located near the television. She tried to identify what is was by touching and smelling it. She concluded that it was poop. As she was inspecting, another member from my family spotted an insect. All of a sudden she shouted "una cucaracha!" We approached her and spotted the most repulsive filthy large cocaroach that we have ever seen. We gathered our belongings and immediately went back down to the lobby. We demanded our money back, which was not a part of their policy. We vigorously gave them the keys and stormed out. Fortunately, a cab driver was handy and we found a very nice hotel located somewhere nearby; across the street from the casino.
