April 9th 2021. This was the absolute worst experience....EVER. After I booked the Travelodge I read the reviews and was worried. When my sister in law and I arrived in the late afternoon, check-in was horrible and sketchy, at best. There seemed to be some questionable characters roaming around the parking lot. Some going from room to room, some skateboarding in as if coming home from somewhere, people sitting outside their room, some sitting on the ground, in some sort of argument. The scent of cigarettes smoke was everywhere even though it's a"smoke free" property. After we went to dinner and came back the questionable activity esclated. People whistling and yelling to each other, people roaming around, some sitting in lawn chairs outside their rooms, everyone was smoking, people yelling, the smell of marijuana, some guys is washing his car, all after midnight. I called Expedia and they were impossible to deal with. Turns out, this Travelodge rents their rooms as temporary housing. We were renting a room in low income housing.......literally. I called the police about a possible ordinance violation and they were aware of the situation. The dispatcher said some of the motels in the area are "going that direction". We took the measly $25 credit to check into another hotel at 1:00 A.M. we are disgusted that Travelodge misrepresented themselves as a safe, clean, honest, family friendly motel but it's anything but safe and clean. PLEASE DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!
