So I don’t have much to complain about
When planning our trip I booked a relatively cheap hotel. It had good enough reviews. Besides, it was pet friendly and we would be taking the family dog with us. However, two days before the trip I started to have second thoughts. I was reading some of the negative reviews for the hotel and got very concerned. People talked of bed bugs and PTAC systems that didn’t work. This area can get very warm. It is important that the air conditioning system works in our hotel room. Cleanliness is also very important. So I decided to change our hotel at the last minute. I picked a hotel with much better reviews. The hotel also costs a bit more but I decided it was worth it. Besides, this new hotel was pet friendly too. On the day of our trip we drove over 4 hours and were happy to have finally made it to our destination. However, we then discovered that the entire hotel shares the same air conditioning. There was no thermostat in our room at all. There was just one big HVAC vent. The air conditioning was set to about 70 degrees night and day. This is colder than I like it. There was a small space heater in the room but it wasn’t cold enough to use it. I just wish the hotel had installed zone control so we could adjust the thermostat in our room. Oh well, at least it was clean. We did end up having a very nice trip. The air conditioning was also very quiet. So I don’t have much to complain about. However, I’m not sure I would stay at that hotel again if we ever go back to that area.
