"Go elsewhere" Sleep Inn Tip by seabones

Sleep Inn, Wilson: 2 reviews and 0 photos

We booked a suite which was an upcharge. We were told that it had a jacuzzi, like that was a bonus. However, they didn't say that it didn't have a shower. I've never stayed in a place without one. My family had neither the time nor desire to take a bath, so we had to use a friend's room to shower.

The "king bed" was really a make-shift, temporary bed that folded down from the wall. The mattress was like a sponge. My wife freaked out, as there was an insect in the sheets. The room was old and worn appearing. My friend's room on the first floor smelled like mildew.

The breakfast was average to below average with a waffle maker, standard pastries/bagels, some fruit and packaged hard boiled eggs that looked like fish bait.

The manager/owner was rude and unfriendly.

There was an indoor pool that we didn't use.

We stayed because a group we were with chose it from a distance. If we have the misfortune of them picking it next year (I doubt it, as everyone had similar complaints), we'll go to one of the surrounding places.
