I had this problem once before when I stayed at a Holiday Inn property, took pictures, and even contacted their corporate. I had stayed at the same other hotel two different times, and each time it was blatantly evident that the bed had been slept in when we checked in. There were person-shaped wrinkled areas on the bottom sheets, and they were soiled. I took pictures, but corporate defended their policy of not changing sheets except between guests, and blew me off. I never had this experience at any other hotel, but on a trip chose to try another Holiday Inn Express because it was convenient. The first room we were given was obviously not cleaned or changed since the last guest, as the sheets were a mess, the toilet paper torn off, the toilet seat up, and linens with stains. ,they gave another room, but it was essentially the same. They tried a floor higher, in what must be their best room, and it looked a bit better. We stayed, but soon discovered the sheets and pillowcases were dingy and stained, there were M & Ms on the floor, and a used towel was slung over the shower rod. In one of the other rooms, the bedside alarm clock was plugged in across the room on the tiny table provided. It was awful. Their hot breakfast featured what I can only guess was powdered eggs, as they bore no taste resemblance to any real eggs I have ever had. They had no "real" tea, just weirdly flavored decaffeinated tea bags. When shown all the pictures of all the problems in all the rooms, the personnel simply insisted that the head of housekeeping personally inspects every room. I suspect that the corporate policy of not changing bed linens except between guests gets easily abused and confused, especially if the poorly trained housekeeping staff has a problem with English, or they are not promptly I formed when guests leave and come. At any rate, I will never stay at any Holiday Inn property again. My husband and I both woke up with suspicious bites on our lower legs. Tampa on Bruce B. Downs Holiday Inn Express is the only exception-- they are great. Stay at the one in Macon at your own risk. I had photos, but it wouldn't let me upload them on my iPad to this page.
