Being a Platinum Elite, I am always offered 500 points or a snack amenity upon check in at an IHG affiliate, but this property offered neither. After receiving my keys, I checked room 402 to find blood smeared on the wall, a swamp water view, garbage outside my balcony, thousands of mosquitos swarming from the swamp, and a hallway carpet needing vacuuming.
