Worst experience at a hotel ever

Bathroom was not cleaned while we were at the hotel. There was construction going on in the hotel until 11:30 pm. I found a pill on the floor of my room. The dumpster was changed out at 12:00 am. The hotel had a strange smell throughout the building. The hotel is hidden behind trees as you go up route 3 and is difficult to see until the last minute. There was a lamp inside of the room that did not have a shade on it and there were also lamps that were unplugged. The elevators were very small and would move while the doors were open. The light switch for one of the lights was inside of the closet. The outside door that was supposed to only be used by guests with a key was broken, so it was unlocked at all times. There was a way to get to the IHOP through the hotel, however it was blocked by construction and we had to walk through the parking lot outside. There was also construction equipment and supplies stacked throughout the hotel, in the hallways and common areas. The coffee pot supplied in the room was not clean and a purple residue was all over the coffee supplies.

"Ok for last minute trip"

The room smelled, the door wouldn't lock when closed, but the staff was nice.
