    Property condition


    • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    The whole room smelled like old musty room. The headboard was broken and leaning to the left. I asked if anything could be done about the smell, which was very prevalent, the front desk told me I could go down and pick up a box of baking soda and sprinkle it in the room.

    Ants, Black Mold, Iffy Desk Clerk and No Response

    The bathroom had black mold on the ceiling and ants all around. Also, the desk clerk, when we checked in, at our request stored our bag of ham in the pantry fridge. When I went to the lobby the next day to get it, the (different desk clerk) did not seem to know what I was talking about, and told me he looked in the *laundry* even though I repeated pantry multiple times. Finally he found it. Upon our return, I emailed Gateway Inn our concerns, complete with pictures of the black mold and the ants. I received no response.
