My family and I have just experienced the worst rip off of our life in a hotel and I am trying to get the word out as much as I possibly can so others do not lose a couple hundred bucks like we did.
We went to a hotel called Lava hot springs Inn. The pictures on the net of the room (the Alladin Inn) look nothing like the real room. This place has got to be a fire disaster waiting to happen. The furnace is all black and the ceiling and the walls surrounding it are blackened. There was soot all over the carpet and walls. It looks like something has happened in terms of fire damage and never even cleaned up.
The carpets were all damp and dirty with hair all over the bedding and carpets. The whole place stunk to high heaven of mildew, mold and only God knows what else. There are cracks everywhere. Ceiling, walls, floors. This for $190.00 a night. The pools in the internet adds.............only half of them were filled and the ones that were looked like slime holes is the only way I can describe them. The grounds were so unkept, with weeds overgrown everywhere and debri all around. When we asked for a refund because we didn't even feel safe being there it was so bad and with the temp outside being 56 degrees we didn't even feel safe using the furnace, the guy running the hotel refused. He took us to another room that he said he would give us instead and lead us to this room where the whole front part of it was like an abandoned warehouse. We went up steps that seemed very unsafe and this place looked like a crackhouse. It looked like something out of the movie "Deliverance".
When we refused to take any of the rooms because the entire hotel stunk so badly of mold, he told us he would give us half back and this was only after we threatened to expose this hotel's fraudelent description and pictures on the internet. However, our account was charged the full amount and no refund has appeared as of yet.
If run-down, smelly, old building with unkept grounds and unsafe to eat, walk, or sleep in is what you're looking for, then go to the Lava Hot springs Inn.
