I have stayed in quite a few hotels over the years, and have found all my stays to be acceptable with one exception. That's the weekend we stayed at the Sun Time Inn. The date of our stay was a couple years prior than I can select, but the experience will forever be burned in my memory. I try never to think about it, as I'm not one to dwell on bad experiences. But as a service to all of you, I thought I had better write a review.
I had decided to stay at the Sun Time Inn because it was the closest hotel to the finish of the St. George Marathon. It's location was perfect for our purposes. I could walk to the buses that would take us to the marathon start, and I could walk from the finish line to my room to take a quick shower. Well, I would rather walk 26 miles back to the start of the race than stay in this hotel again. The location is not worth what we went through staying here.
When we checked in, they had us pay up front for all three nights. That is pretty much the norm now days. But when we walked into our room we realized we had been had! There were potato chips on the kitchen floor, fruit loops on the edges of the room, a dirty bed spread, and holes in the walls! Even though we couldn't afford it, we would have walked right out and stayed somewhere else if every hotel in town wasn't booked. That is every hotel except for the Sun Time Inn. On marathon weekend, every hotel in town is booked way in advance. But when you drive by the Sun Time Inn, you will always see a vacancy sign. Maybe that's because no one stays here twice!!
On top of this, the service was awful as well. When we complained about our rooms, they were very unprofessional and rude. Then they had the gumption to call the police on us for complaining! We were silent the rest of the trip, because we had no other options unless we wanted to sleep in the van for a few days and still not get our money back. In hind site, that may have been a better option. When we got home, two of our family had lice.
I don't know what else to say. I keep thinking that eventually this place will shut down and someone will build a respectable hotel here, but every year I go down for the marathon and see it still there. I quickly put it out of my mind so I can enjoy my stay..... SOMEWHERE ELSE!!
