Sometimes it is the little things

So I stay in a few Hotel/Motels a year. It is not to the extreme but I get to see a variety of rooms. Recently we stayed in a In for Holiday (I am sure you can figure it out) Anyway, it was the little things in the room that made the big difference.

The shower curtain was not long enough so a lot of water ran on the floor. Either lower the shower curtain rod or get a longer curtain. This has to cause extra cleaning every day.

Every time you flush the toilet it made a horrendous squeal. (I was with the family so when the boys got up to use it in the night, the squeal would wake me up.) When the room gets cleaned, the housekeeper would have to hear that noise. Get it right.

When I went to charge the phone and such, the outlets were so worn out that you could not keep anything plugged in. Again, when house keeping vacuumed the room, they would have to have the same problem.

The TV did not work. I do not mean the TV itself, rather cable was out. Go figure during tournament time. Many times I realize that the facility cannot control services. By itself probably not that big a deal. With everything else it was just part of the experience.

The soda machines on the main floor were all out of service. So I went next door to the LJS (Long John Silvers) to get a drink. Go figure, here is a guy watching the game (He was very friendly) I give you one guess where he was staying.

But hey, the internee worked. Thank goodness for Slingbox. Carsen watched TV on his iPad!
