On January 2nd of 2017 i came here to celebrate my 22nd birthday. My boyfriend booked the honeymoon suite for us. Seemed so wonderful on the internet. Dual shower heads, Sauna, and a heart shaped jacuzzi in our room. Needless to say, as soon as we walked into the hotel, we lasted about 10 minutes before we asked for a refund and proceeded to the Hampton Inn.
We walked in, and the mood was set, upon the front desk there was a sign saying the pool was closed. Ruining our plans to invite friends to swim for my birthday. The lights were incredibly dim, and the whole hotel design was incredibly outdated. If basically felt like I was in The Shining. I felt like Jack Nicholson and his ax were going to show up at any moment.
The hotel clerk, while being very polite, did inform us that their community Jacuzzi was still up and running, so at least we had that. or so I thought.
We arrived at our room shortly after that, and one of the perks of the honeymoon suite was that we could see the whole hotel form our room, so from the window i could see the Jacuzzi. Picture is attached but it does not do it justice. It looked murky and disgusting. Like Shrek's swamp. I was like, okay, well maybe we can all just fit in my Jacuzzi. it'll be fine. but then I turned on the water to my jacuzzi and it was Donald Trump Orange. again, the picture I have attached of the water coming out does not do it justice. A minute went by and we decided to get a refund. and head to the Hampton. Would only recommend this hotel if you planned on shooting a sequal to The Shining. This hotel would be absolutely perfect for it.
