Our only choices for adjustment were on or off and switching between heating and cooling
Last winter, right around the first of the year, my husband and I spent almost three weeks traveling along the southern coats. Bob and I live in the northern area of the country. We are accustomed to extremely cold and snowy conditions at that time of year. We were excited for sunshine and warmer temperatures. We spent a lot of time on the road, visiting interesting sites, lying on the beach and swimming in the ocean. We only needed hotel rooms to sleep and shower in. Bob and I decided not to strain our budget on luxury accommodations. We were lucky that most of the cheaper hotels were clean and sufficient for our needs. They provided plenty of hot water, fairly comfortable beds and working air conditioning. However, we ended up in one hotel that was just terrible. Bob and I realized we had a problem when he stepped off the elevator. The hallway reeked of dog, cigarettes and mildew. Inside the hotel room, the carpet was stained and there were webs in the corners. The desk was dusty, the tub rust stained and the faucet dripped. We just needed a quick sleep before he got back on the road first thing in the morning. We discovered that the mattress was lumpy, the sheets scratchy and the pillows had a weird odor to them. The room was overheated and stuffy because of the ancient air conditioner. The cooling unit was dented, corroded and dirty. Our only choices for adjustment were on or off and switching between heating and cooling. We set it on cooling mode but the unit didn’t put out enough air to make much difference.
