[QUOTE=bribren;1063988]This is one of my favorite quotes…
Assuming the other patrons had been quiet all night, I would still consider the Jack London Inn the worst hotel I had ever seen. The rooms displayed a level of filth and discomfort that mere neglect could never produce. The parking lot resembled a post apocalyptic junk yard. The halls reeked of cigarette smoke, body odor, and failure. Commuter rail trains, horns blasting, passed the hotel every few minutes.
I would have had a better experience drinking $45 of cheap wine and spending the night in Oakland’s drunk tank than I had at the Jack London Inn for $45 a night. At least the jailer would have had the courtesy to tell the inmates to be quiet. If Jack London were alive today, he would change his name to avoid any association with this benighted hotel.[/I][/QUOTE]
That’s what you get for staying in a hotel off Jack London Square where the train track is literally in the middle of the street.
It’s well known as a great place for train watching.
If you’re staying there, you should have done your homework instead of looking at only the price.
Oh yeah, a hotel near Buffalo “International” Airport, not surprising, and even less surprising is a motel in Elizabeth next to Newark Airport.
The sad thing is that one of the old art deco hotels on Miami Beach, 6 blocks south of the Fontainbleau made the list.
