To say that this hotel is Horrible and Unsafe is probably an understatement. As a Police Officer I felt the need to write this after my stay on personal business. I was from out of town and it had nothing to do with my job. Upon arrival they will tell you that you MUST fill out a form (which has all your personal information) because they need to keep it on file while your in the hotel and that you can have it back when you leave. ABSOLUTE LIE. They will not give it back to you. When I asked why they needed all the additional info the desk clerk stated that it was in case the local police needed to do an investigation it would prove I stayed there. I booked my room online with a Credit Card and when I mentioned this the Clerk just regurgitated that it was "POLICY" in case the police needed it. I filled out the form with semi bogus info and refused to give some details.
Now, I headed to my room. Tired and frustrated after driving from D.C. I get to my room. First thing I notice is the odor's walking down the hallway. Not Drugs or anything.. But it smelled like a dirty locker room that hadn't been cleaned in a month. The signs say no smoking but I can tell you that's not enforced. I got into the room and found BLACK MOLD in the air conditioner unit, the sheets on one of the beds were stained with an unknown substance (not small stains). Luckily the other bed was descent after careful inspection.
I heard 4-5 arguments through out the night between drunks in the hallway and adjacent rooms. The few times I ran out to my vehicle I found there were always drunks hanging out in front of the hotel smoking and being loud or randomly in the parking lot. Several of them tried to bum money or cigarettes from me and were pretty aggressive in their pursuit.
Bottom line... The only reason I wasn't truly harassed was because I was able to show some of the idiots a GUN AND BADGE that I happened to carry based on profession.
DO NOT STAY HERE.. ITS NOT WORTH IT.. 48 hrs after checking out and being home I now have a very very bad sinus infection, sore throat and chest congestion that will cost me 2-3 sick days.
