“No frills? OLD SPILLS. Roomy? No, GLOOMY.”
After reading the positive reviews I thought, "why not?". The price is unbeatable... BUT you get what you pay for.
This motel is... gross. When I first stepped foot at the East Grand Inn, the cigarette smoke smell is the first thing I noticed. I don't believe the rooms are actually "non-smoking" as cigarette smoke wafted through the hallways. When I checked-in, the man at the desk was in the office, talking on his cell phone. I peeked around the desk to get his attention. I got my keys and headed to the entrance on the side of the motel. The room key opens both the room door and the outside entrance - however that "security" door latch was broken, so anyone could get inside the motel! Dangerous! I got into my room... here goes:
-Hair on the toilet seat
-Bent drapery rod, as if someone hung from the middle of it
-Soiled mattresses! The boxspring had old stains running down the sides
-Dirty bed sheet and pillowcase (small, questionable stains)
-Lamp on table didn't work
-One light over the bed didn't work, light switch was broken. I had to turn the lightbulb to turn it on and off
-Something sticky on bedside table from previous renter
-Musty cigarette smoke smell in "Non-smoking room"
-Chairs were old & stained (There were stains on literally EVERYTHING in the room.)
After an uncomfortable nights sleep (to say the least), I got up for the free breakfast. The breakfast that is served in the morning is a bag of bagels & a bag of english muffins and coffee. After seeing the quality of the room, this breakfast was actually more than I expected.
After a two night stay, I checked out early. I had to interrupt the front desk person, who was lounging on the the couch in the lobby area, watching t.v., to do so.
I was SO happy to leave. This is the worst quality motel/hotel I have ever stayed in. Needless to say, I won't be back.
Would I recommend this hotel to a friend? NO NO NO!!!
I wouldn't recommend this hotel to ANYONE.
