By far this has been the most horrible experience in a hotel!!! I travel frequently and never have I seen anything like this before. I was washing my hands in the bathroom sink and noticed something come up through the drain. The drain didn't have a drain stopper. I pulled the object out and immediately threw it on the floor once I realized what it was, it was a HYPODERMIC NEEDLE. I grabbed the needle with toilet tissue and disposed of it and then went back to the sink to wash my hands thoroughly after touching the used needle. When doing so, once again I noticed another needle float up and I could see a third one beside it. I have never been exposed to anything like this and it was extremely traumatizing for the fact that I was exposed to drug infected needles. Obviously someone who wasn't very smart thought that disposing of their needles in the sink would get rid of their evidence. When in fact sinks have a p-trap and there is no way that a syringe is going to magically bend and go through. I requested that the hotel give me a full refund and they denied! HAVING MY LIFE THREATENED IS NOT WORTH STAYING AT THIS PROPERTY. The room was not what I paid for but I knew it was for just one night. The room was suppose to be non-smoking but it smelt of cigarette smoke. I found cigarette ashes on the carpet and a dead roach. The room hadn't been vacuumed, the bath tub was brown and there was no TV remote for the TV.

price listed was $69 pd close to $100? Our kids (8& 9) were with us, fortunately it was late so basically put on pjs and went to bed. I didn't want them touching stuff in the room, I actually made them skip a shower. We had 1/2 roll TP, so middle of the night my husband had to walk to the front desk and ask for more. +micro & fridge, neither was plugged in. The staff was very kind and courteous. These things will improve.
