In early April 2017 we stayed in Germantown at and Extended Stay hotel. The visit wasn't bad, but it wasn't good. The room had obviously not been cleaned overly well as we saw what looked to be boogers dried on the bathroom wall. Yes, it was gross! But a few weeks later when that hotel came up as the cheapest option for where we wanted to go, we decided to give it another try. After all, I'm sure something like that could be overlooked very easily.
We pulled up to the hotel at about 3:15 on April 22. Check in started at 3 so we were right on time. We walked into the hotel lobby and there was a line. The gentleman behind the counter was polite...but moved VERY slow. (And really, is an untucked dress shirt under a track jacket proper attire?) Finally it was our turn to check in. We walked into our room at 4:15, an hour after arriving at the hotel.
The first thing we noticed? The room reeked. It was obvious that someone had been smoking pot in the room...a lot of pot! We opened the window and let the room air out and we were right as rain. Yes, I checked, the bathroom had no boogers so we were good!
The next problem came at 12 midnight when someone knocked on our door. Jason looked out the window and the guy quickly said "Sorry" and moved away. Within the next half hour he knocked 4-5 more times. I called the front desk but they just laughed and told us to call the police. The police? For someone roaming the property? We vowed that if it got out of hand we would. I eventually went back to sleep but kept hearing random knocks that I thought I was just dreaming. It wasn't until the morning that I found out that the knocking had recommenced at 3AM and again at 5AM.
The icing on the cake? When I was in the shower I looked up at the top of the shower curtain and there was a dried crusty washcloth hanging over the curtain. I knew immediately....neither Jason or I put washcloths over the curtain rod. I asked him to be sure....and actually visually saw the washcloths that he and I both used. It was DEFINITELY not ours! EWWWWWW
