"Hey, Rod. Are you SURE you won't be going back to Comfort Suites?" "Oh. Positive." | Mental Poo

"Hey, Rod. Are you SURE you won't be going back to Comfort Suites?" "Oh. Positive."

I recently came back from a trip with my kids to Hershey, Pennsylvania.

Hershey, Pennsylvania motto:

"Come for the chocolate. Stay for the diabetes."

Regardless, we stayed at the lovely Comfort Suites Hotel in nearby Hummelstown which we had to get to by passing a place called "Shartlesville" which still makes me laugh to this very day because it has "Shart" in it and I'm 9.

How was the stay?

Well, maybe this nice letter I sent to Guest Relations at Comfort Suites will fill the picture in for you:

Wait...there's more...

So now I sit here waiting for my complaint to be answered in which case I'm hoping I get some refund and maybe a million dollars or something to compensate for my mental anguish and all around general grossed-outedness but would seriously settle for one of those 5 lb. Hershey bars they sell at the gift stores.

I'm easy that way. Unless it involves blood. Then I make things complicated.


Just got this email:


Looks like I can file this under "the squeaky wheel gets the grease."

Or, more appropriately, "the blood-stained linens get the Resolve Stain Remover."

Whew. I like how the receptionist wanted to know what happened. Like you must have bled on their dang pillow. Good grief. LOL

I once stayed at The Orlando Grand Hotel and Suites in Orlando Florida because I had to take a class for my nursing license. It was neither grand, nor a suite. It was a closet of a room with two queen beds and it was so small you could barely walk around the beds. There were not only pubic hairs of any color you could think of on the bathroom floor, there was also a turd squished on the floor next to the toilet. There were dead bugs in the light fixture over the sink (and BIG dead bugs at that) and the trashcan was stuck to the floor. When we managed to pry it loose, there was some moldy fungus stuff growing under it.

We had to stay one night because all the hotels in town were booked for some other conference, so we pulled all the bedsheets off one bed and draped them over the floor from the bed area to the bathroom and we slept on top of the blankets on the other bed.

Dang expedia gave it a 4 star rating. I think their standards must be low.

At least your kids didn't find a cum filled condom on the floor near the bed and chew the juice out of it like this kid did. ha ha.


Or this one.


or this one. Mother of GOD how come so many kids are stupid and like to chew used condoms????

Well I Must say, Deb is a wealth of knowledge on gross hotel stories.

WTF? nobody cares about their job anymore. I would venture a guess as to the housekeeping being paid a minimal wage and no oversite.

I used to work in the hotel/motel industry, and I have to say that, as you may have guessed, there is no planet on which this is acceptable. If I had been at the front desk, I would have gone back to the room with you (or sent someone) and removed ALL of the linens and replaced them. And had whoever made up that room fired (although our head housekeeper would have beat me to that-- she was the Iron Lady!). I think the hotel should reimburse you, send the 5 lb. Hershey bar, and offer you at least one free hotel stay with no strings attached (none of that "only on third Thursdays when the moon is full" bulls**t). I mean, SERIOUSLY!

I just re-read the title of this post - and got it! Ha ha! Clever!

I would have been totally grossed out! How could they have missed this when cleaning the room? Unless someone sneaked in the room after it was cleaned? You definitely deserve your money back!

Oh, Positive! Brilliant.

I think there is a Bitter Baking Cookie in this experience...

Remember the old joke about the hispanic maid put "sheets" on your bed?

Rebecca said...

Keep us posted on this one. I could imagine that they would offer something pretty good. They should.

Deb: Congratulations on making me dry heave. That was awesome.

I have an update for this post that I'll put up on here tomorrow. Looks like the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Or the blood-stained pillow gets the Resolve Stain Remover sprayed on it.

poTAto, poTAHto

Good God Almighty. I just threw up a little.

GunDiva said...


I have to go take a bleach shower now, thankyouverymuch.

And Deb...how do you find all those disgusting articles? Really? My other question is - were they flavored condoms? 'Cause that would make so much more sense as to why kids were sucking *gag* on them.

Alyssa said...

Ha ha--I saw one of the "kid-chewing-used-condom" stories on the news a while back, so I googled "child chewing used condom at a hotel" so I could post the link to it on here, and JEEZ there were so many of them. I stopped at three. Stomach churning. Gahhh.

My guess is that they were "cum" flavored. Hahahaha.

Excuse me while I go puke now. :)

to this day I don't trust Expedia's hotel rating.... I stayed at a hotel with a decent rating and it ended up the most horrible hotel experience I've ever had in my life.

Becky said...

Oh my god. That is just disgusting!! I don't think I would have been able to be so polite about something like that. I'm willing to overlook the small things - no need to be a douche about everything - but this is just...I don't even know. You should definitely leave a review on whatever site you found it on. I know I wouldn't ever want to stay there!!

The smiley faces made all the difference. I have sent off a number of what I thought were "friendly-let's-not-consider-this-a-bitch-slap", letter after a bad experience and I got jack shit.
Very clever of you to add the extra touch that got you a refund. Good call.

PS Super gross, you deserved more than the refund.

Claire Lopez said...

OMG that's disgusting!

Lady Estrogen said...

That is pretty repulsive - glad you got a refund though!

A friend and I went on a trip together and stayed at an expensive hotel for two weeks. We started marking the corners of each bed in pencil with an "x." Our suspicions were true...they were only changing the sheets on one bed a day. I suspect they did that in all of the rooms. We have no idea if we started out with fresh sheets or not.

At least you got your money back...all I got was fresh sheets!
