“Everyone's Rushing Out of This Room, Apparently (Including housekeeping)”

  , Bothell
We made a reservation for a Jacuzzi king suite. The price was reasonable, the location of the hotel was central enough for me to get to my family and also enjoy downtown. Starting out pretty delighted! Upon arrival, we were exhausted. We were able to check in early, drop our bags, and rush back out to contend with the family emergency that brought us here so close to the holidays. The first thing we noticed when we got back in was that the TV remote didn't turn on the TV nor did the manual power button. These things happen, we weren't that upset. Also realized that one of the bedside lights is linked to the same switch as the sconces and walkway to the bathroom. In order to be able to use it in the middle of the night, the lights have to already be on... or it just doesn't turn on, making the bedside lamp a bit pointless on that side. Again, not so much a big deal as it was poor forethought in building. Hardly the current management's fault. Rather, it can be attributed to the designer/construction workers. We were really just too tired to care about either of these things which weren't a big deal. The next morning, I took a shower. That's when things went sour. The bathroom was wheelchair accessible. The seat in the shower caught my eye first. There was a lot of soap buildup and it looked as though it hadn't been cleaned after weeks of use. I brushed it off as possibly being stained by so much use and the seat being old. We weren't going to use it anyway so it didn't matter to me. I hopped in to take a shower. Then I noticed the mold. Around the base of every connection point of the railings was a thick quarter inch to half an inch of mold. I am /very/ allergic to mold and was completely horrified to see that much built up. I know that older hotels occasionally get some they can't get rid of in the grout, and can be understanding to a little of buildup. This was not that. I used to clean rooms and I guess that both cursed and blessed me with patience for the workers, but the ability to see anything wrong with a room's cleanliness. I jumped out and herded my husband to pack with me to leave. On the way, I noticed that the window sill was drenched. Upon closer examination I noticed a lack of insulation, leaving the melting ICE building up on the inside of the window to spill over onto the heater and floor. I didn't even want to know what was in the jacuzzi jets. The management waved the early cancellation fee, but we still paid $100.
