Some $500-Plus A Night SB LIII Hotel Rooms Are Beyond Disgusting With Roaches, Toenail Clippings And Even A Peephole
According to the folks over at Inside Edition, who visited some of the hotel rooms in and around Atlanta at Super Bowl LIII, going for anywhere from $500 to almost $1,000 a night, are absolutely disgusting.
We’re talking hairs on the sheets, chicken bones, cockroaches, toenail clippings, used Q-tips, mold, and holes in the walls disgusting.
Inside Edition’s Chief Investigative Correspondent Lisa Guerrero went to the Quality Inn Atlanta Airport Central, where she found hairs among the sheets and a discarded chicken bone under the bed in a room going for $560 a night, over seven times the regular rate.
At a Knights Inn located on Fulton Industrial Boulevard where rooms for the Super Bowl cost triple their normal price, Guerrero found a cockroach, broken furniture, a busted wall and even mold in the mini-fridge.
But wait, there’s more.
Where the cable wires for a television came out of the wall, Guerrero pointed out a rag shoved in the wall. When she pulled it out, she could see straight through to the room next door.
“I mean, I can literally see right into their bed,” Guerrero said. “This is unbelievable!”
WHen she visited a Red Roof Inn, Guerrero spotted a roaches on the ceiling of one room and the lamp in the room had no shade. Just a bulb. Oh, the normal rate for this room is $69 (nice), but this week the roach-infested space will run you $800 a night.
Not a bad deal considering that you get things like a complimentary top of a pot and some Paris Hilton perfume, which she found on the bed when she pulled the bed away from the wall.
At least the pull-out bed in the room works. Oh… wait… the springs gave out when a producer laid down on it? Perfect.
Spokespeople, representatives and managers of the various hotels gave excuses like “they are working with the owner to fix the issues” and “the hotel is undergoing renovations.”
No mention of any kind of discount.
