Delta Barrington, Halifax, NS

The Delta Barrington was supposed to be my home away from home this week in Halifax (last night 'til Friday morning) and next week (Sunday 'til Thursday).

The first thing I noticed when I walked into the room was a musty smell.  No problem, I thought, as I always travel with scented candles.

Then I noticed how tired the room and the furniture were.

I've never seen a bed against a wall in a hotel
There were big gouges in the furniture

I decided to spend the week there but changed my arrangements for next week within minutes.

I found a small dark curly hair on one of the beds ... eeeew!  Needless to say, I didn't sleep in that bed.

I was just dozing off to sleep last night when I hear a LOUD roar.  I got up to check and it was the person in the room above me running a tub ... it sounded like they were running the water in my tub!  That's it ... I was done!

When I got up this morning, I checked myself into another hotel online for the rest of the week.  When I told the woman at reception I was checking out, she offered to move me to another room but I declined.  I stay in a lot of hotels because of work and have stayed in a lot of Deltas.  This room was below their standard and is the first time I've ever checked out of one before my stay was over.  I won't be back.
