Toaster Tip #26

Never make a reservation at a “hotel” that has to include the word BEST in it’s name.

If they have to tell you they are the BEST then….well, maybe they are NOT the best after all.

Here is the story.  We decided to spend the night in GR last weekend.  It was last minute but I was able to book online and reserve a room at America’s BEST Inn.  Awesome right?  Especially when you are travelling with four tired and cranky children. 

We pulled into the parking lot and it was filled with cars(duh, its a hotel) and people.  Just milling around.  Next, a woman comes running up to me and asks for a smoke.  When I say I don’t smoke.  She responds politely, “Yeah right, Bitch.”

Now I know you are thinking, “So, you got back in the car and left.”  No. No I didnt.  I proceeded to walk into the building hoping it would get better.  Wrong.  Fortunately, I saw the room before any money changed hands.

Stinky. Dirty. Rotten. Ewww. These are all words that came to mind as he showed me into the room. If only the internet had scratch n sniff then you could get the full interactive experience.

As I went running from the hotel while still holding my breath because the stench as so strong, the worker shouted, “you want room?”

When I climbed back into the car, Charlie summed it up nicely.  “Mom, I think this place is called America’s WORST Inn.”

When I got home, I dug a little deeper and found this review…

Do Not Book!

I canceled my reservation after seeing the condition of the hotel, hallways and room. This was a flophouse, not a hotel! Renting rooms by the week or month, trash everywhere and broken down vehicles in the parking lot. Expedia needs to remove this “building” from its choices.
 
 
Hmmmm… I guess I wasn’t being overly critical afterall.

    I have been there ( not at GR BEST INN) with a few experiences like that. We were always glad to leave, but always finding some humor.
