Culpeper >Lodging > Rodeway Inn
My husband and I arrived at Rodeway Inn in Culpeper, Va around 12:00 am, on Friday, April 13, 2012. My mother had called the hotel earlier that evening to reserve and pay for the room. When we arrived we explained to the front desk clerk that the room was reserved and paid for and the reservations should be under my name. The hotel clerk was very rude and spoke very little English. I had to wake my mother up by phone to have her explain to him that he had her authorization to use her credit card. He would not speak to her and said that he need written authorization, even though that is not what he had told her over the phone. I was so tired that I told him I would just pay for it myself. We paid for the room and got the keys. Inside the room, I was overwhelmed with shock of what our room looked like. There was a bug smashed to the ceiling. There were electrical cords stretched throughout the room; plugging in the space heater on the counter area and behind the bed to plug in the bedside lamps. There were splatters of what looked like, blood and something else sprayed all over the walls. My husband took only a wet cloth and wiped down one section of the wall he looked at the towel afterwards it was filthy with all of the filth that came off of the wall. I turned down the bed sheets to find fresh makeup stains on the bed. My husband left the room to get ice when he got back he told me to not go outside of our room because there were individuals that looked like they were involved in prostitution. I thought that I could just get through the night since, we were exhausted from flying in that day and it was too late to even see if we could find another hotel in the city. My husband and I didn't feel safe inside or out and was afraid of what could possibly crawl on us in the middle of the night. The next morning I didn't even want to go into the bathroom because it was so filthy. There was pubic hair in the bathtub, dirt/grim on the light switches, and the bathroom door handle was barely attached. The hotel room was also hot because the window A/C unit did not cool the room at all. I also had noticed there was what looked like blood on the side of the mattress and all over the boxed springs. My husband and I didn't take a shower or freshen up we packed up our belongings the next morning after taking pictures and went to the front desk clerk. We tried to explain to him how dissatisfied we were and to go take a look at the room with us but he refused. He was the same hateful hotel desk clerk we had the night before. After, arguing for several minutes he decided to only refund us for one night because we had paid for two nights. I will never again stay in a Rodeway Inn and I have made it known to our family and friends to never stay at one again.
