Fleabag hotel stay
Pros: The manager was wonderful. The rest of the desk staff was indifferent and uninformed. It had power, running water, and sewer systems functioning during my hurricane evacuation. My home had none of these after the storm hit.
Cons: My reservation wasn't honored. They had sold my room to someone else. They gave me the last room they had. There was NO continental breakfast as advertised. They didn't even have coffee available. The pool was cracked and had 2 inches of green water in the bottom. The bathroom sink was separated from the wall and held in place with a cast iron drainpipe. The handheld shower head mount was gone and they had put 2 strip of plastic held by 4 nails in the wall to hold it in place. It didn't work so the shower hose just dangled. The mattress pad and bedspread were so filthy and stained that my girlfriend slept in her clothes. There were 2 dead cockroaches on the filthy carpet.There were holes in the wall where a closet had been ripped out and where the soap dish used to be in the shower. By the time we checked in, there were no other hotels available in Georgia, Alabama, or Tennessee due to the hurricane evacuation. We had no choice left. I have never stayed in a worse room in my life, let alone had to pay for such a hovel.
Location: Georgia's "Miniature Grand Canyon" was 15 miles away and spectacular. The "train museum" advertised was located in the city hall which wasn't open.
