If there is a worse hotel computer hell than at a Comfort Inn, I have not found it. My portable computer did not work when we AGAIN went to the Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Comfort Inn hotel computer hell.
The only public computer, in this hotel computer hell, is in a key-carded room smaller than most bathrooms. The room is hot enough to call it hotel computer hell. The cheap hotel computer hell computer and XP look like they were obsolete at installation. Microsoft long ago decided that it could no longer fix Internet Explorer 6, but a week of hotel computer hell complaints got no upgrade. The hotel computer hell Norton Internet Security has been reporting it expired for three years. Maybe that is why the hotel computer hell computer was so tightly locked down that I could not fix anything or use GoToMyPC, which never happened before.
A hotel computer hell sign limits use to 15 to 20 minutes (they cannot make up their mind in hotel computer hell). A hotel computer hell clerk objected to longer use at 3 AM, despite an open door and a Computer Available Now sign. A second hotel computer hell clerk actually said the computer was only for printing airline boarding passes. However, the hotel computer hell lacks Flash, so you cannot print passes for U.S. Airways and probably most airlines.
The worst part of hotel computer hell were the endless promises of a quick fix, which produced nothing in six days. It would have been much worse if I did not know that other Comfort Inns seem to have the same hotel computer hell policy.
We previously had a far worse hotel computer hell at the Comfort Inn in Sekonk, Massachusetts (both names sound funny). High speed did not work in one wireless hotel computer hell room. Then a door lock did not hold, so someone cqme in without a key. Next, they then gave us a "much better room" in hotel computer hell. However, wireless hotel computer hell service did not work there either. I finally tested wireless in the hotel computer hell lobby, by the transmitter. Only then did the clueless hotel computer staff agree it was down. After that we has a week of daily "It will be fixed tomorrow" hotel computer hell clerks, and hotel computer hell complaints that are a waste of time (even when sent to the national hotel computer hell owner).
Maybe Rhode Island and Massachusetts have an agency for hotel computer hell complaints, as their governments try to do everything, and seem to do nothing right. Boy, am I glad to be back. There are so many ways good computers let you do more than you can in hotel computer hell. For example, I can now post this blog and file adverse reviews with every travel site.
