We arrived late night around midnight! Receptionist told us they had one room left, but the previous person didn't want it once they viewed it. I can't remember why! However, I as we stepped into the room there was a rancid odor. So my husband and I look at each other and said that's why they didn't want the room. So we sprayed it with the air freshener we had in the car because we were tired and didn't feel like driving anymore. I took a shower while my husband inquired about the odor and warmed his food in the lobby. As I always do I pulled the comforter back to remove it (I NEVER SLEEP WITH THEM CAUSE THEY DON'T CHANGE THEM BETWEEN GUESTS, I used to work in hotels). As I pulled it back I notice a hair that look like a pubic hair, but thought to myself "that could have been stuck after laundering". Boy was I mistaken!!! Once the sheets were pulled back there was a NASTY PAIR OF MEN'S UNDERWEAR tucked tightly in the foot of the bed. I was livid at this point. As my husband came back I showed him and we went right away to the front desk and told them we found the odor. We had to remake the other bed ourselves and she did offer a free night, but I was amazed. The maid actually just tucked the bed sheets in and called it clean. AMAZINGLY NASTY. The hotel never contacted me with any apologies. Bad business and very unsanitary.
