For the most part, I enjoy staying at hotels.
Knowing that I can get my own private room away from people makes me happy. Sometimes I stay at hotels just to be away for a little while. It’s not anything against my family or friends, I just like my alone time. I was staying at a hotel for a few days, and even though I was originally staying to get some peace and quiet, that was not what I got. A mother of 5 kids were my next door neighbors, and it seemed like those kids never slept. All hours of the night at least one of them was up and screaming, and if one starts screaming, the others are quick to join in. They would bang their fists on the wall as well as run up and down the halls. It was incredibly frustrating. I ended up complaining to the front desk and they moved me to another room. I could still hear the kids, but it was distant. However, there was another problem. This room didn’t seem to have proper air conditioning. The commercial HVAC system was there, but it didn’t work properly. And it didn’t take long before the room heated up. Looking at the thermostat, it seemed the A/C was set to a permanent 80 degrees, which was far too hot for me. I called and complained again, and apparently their HVAC maintenance man wasn’t here today, so I once again had to be moved into another room.
