Motel 6- Willoughby Hills.. Complaint - Very Wet Rooms

Review by chevy98 on 2010-08-17
We checked into Motel 6,,my boyfriend made a comment that the carpet was wet, but we just thought they cleaned the carpets. I got onto my laptop that night to play games..shut it down and went to bed. The next morning the lenses of my glasses had water on them and I could not see, I held onto the wall to walk over to clean them, the walls were so wet...and the carpet was now even wetter. I turned on my laptop and it would not turn on. it's been 3 days and I still can not use my laptop...how do I have to wait to hear from anyone?? and WILL I ever hear from them??? Will NEVER in a million years will I stay at another Motel 6 again!!!!!

What was causing the entire room to be wet? Humidity? A sprinkler?

not sure I am guessing the lack of the a/c working properly...when we checked out another guest ahead of us complained how their a/c was not working properly...

I worked one season at a motel in Ruidoso, NM, and we had a water pipe burst. It took days for us to get all the water vacuumed up, even with huge fans we borrowed from the fire department and the heaters on full blast in the rooms. I cannot, however, imagine them letting you stay in rooms in that condition. I would track down the owner of that Motel 6 and take them to Small Claims court.

I don't know how you were able to sleep under those conditions.

Yes I do intend to pursue this at all costs..and as for sleeping.. I have a severe disease that when I sleep..its a very heavy sleep..the next morning when I woke..it was almost unbearable to move or breathe with all the moisture in the room.

That's why I asked. I wouldn't have been able to breathe in that amount of humidity. Did your boyfriend have trouble sleeping or breathing?

Just curious. Have you tried your laptop again? My daughter once taught at a summer camp where it was very humid and there was no a/c. The extreme humidity affected her iPod to the point that it actually stopped working. However, once she got home and it dried out, it worked again. Just a thought.

i'd suggest contacting the corporation to see if they can pony up for the repairs to the laptop

it may be harder now that you've checked out though.
ideally it's best to bring this to their attention before you leave

where this particular "motel" was would be of some help.

No my boyfriend didn't have trouble sleeping..I did go to the manager before we checked out...I have since been in contact with their corporate office but I haven't heard from them yet. the laptop still wont turn on. the motel was no where near a lake or water areas.

By now the laptop should have had time to dry out, if that was the problem. It is possible that moisture shorted something out, but I'm not sure how anyone would show it was a problem at the motel as compared to say, an accident where damage was on behalf of the user or damage was something non-related to any of this.

Electronics are designed to handle a certain amount of humidity. Some of the southern states become unbelievably humid during this time of year. Individuals residing in these areas just become accustomed to walking around with moisture in their clothing and in the air all day long. Yet electronics still perform fine.

Chev, were you and your boyfriend sharing a room or in separate rooms? Were the conditions in both rooms the same?
