Filthy dirty,misrepresented by Fodor and AAA reviews A review of Hotel California

Made the mistake of accepting AAA and Fodor's reviews of this dump August 2003. They said recently renovated.Were told we were receiving 20% discount for AAA and time of stay. Ad said parking,reality,not enough for guest,spaces so narrow if park can;t exit veficle,advertised $9.00 a day park at thr front desk and then bill $15.00. Question and told too bad,go park elsewhere. Rooms filthy,dirty wood floors. NO AC and no screens in windows.Mold on shower and cracked shower tiles. Black mold on refridge gaskets,dirty towels put in rooms by maids,broken wall outlets.Bird droppings so thick on awnings outside windows you felt contaminated. Maid service poor and slow.Television had only 2 colors green and orange. Complained, nothing done about it.Phone went out and told too bad,you're leaving in a couple days anyways. THE WORST PLACE HAVE EVER STAYED, and if filth is what $200.00 a day gets you in Santa Monica,I say they deserve Anold and the fires.Is not "on the beach" and they do not have their own beach section as implied. A DUMP OF THE FIRST MAGNITUDE.....and awful ,if any service.I HAVE PHOTOS of everything,so I can't be accused of exaggeration.
