To Be Honest

Willowbrook, IL

Believe me, when we set out for Springfield today, we weren't expecting the temps to get down into the 30s, but hey, motels and hotels have heat and air, right? Not exactly. This is what I heard -- "Since everybody was complaining about the heat, "they" turned off the heat and fixed it where patrons could get air conditioning. I asked if we couldn't get what we needed -- heat when it's cold and air when it's warm and I was told, "No... but we have space heaters."

Are you shitting me ??????????

So tell me... am I supposed to take a shower with a space heater? Really?? How am I supposed to face the world tomorrow -- meet new people, go sight-seeing, spend MY MONEY in this town if I cannot get a shower without freezing my ass off ?

This is the last time I'll be coming back to this fair city... sorry... I'm sure most people would say "good riddance," but tell me something, if you can -- what if everyone who came here was faced with these dilemmas? They would stop coming, right? They would stop spending their money here, right? So I guess the locals can support all the hotels and motels in the area. Just saying... This isn't right -- a person who checks into a motel or hotel should have the choice of heat or air -- especially heat if the temps are unseasonably cold and air conditioning if it's unseasonably warm. People shouldn't have to choose and just because a few people got a little too hot and couldn't turn on the air, they shut off the heat and fixed the air conditioning. So... if too many people get cold, they'll render the air conditioning useless and turn on the heat.

What the hell kind of place is this? Travelodge. Okay, so we chose the wrong place -- out of all the places in Springfield, why the hell did we have to choose this place? I figured if it had a nice little restaurant and a nice lounge, there would be HEAT AND AIR in the rooms!

Had to vent... So who gives a crap? WE DO.... we'll be returning back to the south tomorrow, when we'd planned to stay here for at least 2 days and spend our money supporting local establishments. We'll go back and spend our money in our hometown, or further south!

WTF ?!!
