酒店惊魂夜 Bad Hotel Experience

文字难度:♥♥◊

A friend of mine went on vacation some time back. She had saved all of her rainy day money to go out of town and spend a relaxing quiet night at a Hampton Inn.
前不久,我的一位朋友外出度假。她把之前存着以备不时之需的钱都用来到小镇外走走,在汉普顿酒店里度过一个轻松宁静的夜晚。

When I asked her about her trip, she frowned and explained:
当我问起她的旅行时,她皱起了眉头,将这次经历娓娓道来:

酒店惊魂夜 Bad Hotel Experience - 第1张  | 快乐英语Upon pulling up to the Hampton Inn, it was just a beautiful hotel. The exterior landscaping was just breath taking. She unloaded her three bags and suitcase and proceeded into the main lobby. Oh, they had an exquisite waterfall and 1)complimentary cookies and hot coffee. She was so ready to relax and enjoy her mini-vacation. When she went to check in, she 2)anted up $129.64 and paid cash. But what followed seemed a little unexpected, she was given a trash bag, a roll of toilet paper, and an 3)underarm 4)deodorant. But despite these odd 5)amenities, the desk clerk was pleasant and all she wanted to do was just lie down. Unfortunately, the hotel didn’t have an elevator and the clerk put her upstairs. As she climbed the stairs and walked towards her room, she began to smell an unexplainable odor 6)reeking from several of the rooms. She dropped her luggage at the door and opened up to what she thought would be the most serene comfortable room. WRONG! The bed looked like it had been slept in; the bathroom towels were on the floor beside an obviously used and dirty toilet. She opened the mini-fridge to find 7)mold growing on some kind of fruit that smelled so bad it took her breath away. As she looked around in dismay, she decided to leave her luggage at the door and sit down on the bed despite her utter confusion. It was at this point that she noticed several bugs coming towards her. She jumped up and pulled the covers back to find soiled 8)bed linens, and I mean someone got it in the you-know-what. The bugs were having a party and she was sure they thought she was bringing dessert. She grabbed her luggage and 9)literally ran back to the front desk. She explained to the clerk how 10)appalled she was with her room and wanted a 11)refund immediately. The desk clerk explained that the hotel owner had adopted a new “house keeping policy” and that had she read the posted sign (to her left) she would have been aware. And no, they would not refund her money.
当她的车在这家汉普顿酒店门前停下时,映入眼帘的是一家漂亮的酒店。酒店外面的景色,令人叹为观止。她从车里卸下三个箱包,然后朝酒店大堂走去。哇,这家酒店有精致的人工瀑布、免费饼干和热咖啡。她准备好了要在这里好好放松一下,享受一次小长假。登记入住时,她用现金预付了129.64美元。但接下来的事情似乎有点出乎意料:酒店的接待人员给了她一个垃圾袋、一卷厕纸和一瓶腋下除臭剂。尽管这几样东西让人觉得有点蹊跷,但酒店接待人员却非常友好,而她想要的不过是能躺下来美美地睡一觉。不幸的是,这家酒店没有电梯,而接待人员把她安排在楼上。当她爬着楼梯走向自己的房间时,她开始闻到一种不可名状的气味,这些气味从好几个房间里传出来。她把行李放在房间门口并打开了门,心想眼前的卧室一定是最宁静舒适的。但是,她大错特错了!床看起来就像已经有人睡过;浴巾就放在厕所旁边的地板上,而厕所显然是被人使用过的脏兮兮的样子。她打开微型冰箱,发现里面有某种水果已经发霉,散发出难闻的气味,简直让人窒息。失望地环顾四周,尽管困惑不已,她还是决定把行李放到门边,在床上坐了下来。就在这时,她发现几只臭虫朝她爬了过来。她跳了起来,把床罩往后拉了一下,却发现床单到处是污渍,污渍是怎么弄到床单上的,我想你们懂的。这些臭虫正在开派对,她确信臭虫还以为她给它们带来了点心。她一把拿上行李,几乎是跑着回到了前台。她向接待人员解释那房间糟糕得多么令人震惊,并且想要酒店马上给她退款。接待人员解释说,酒店老板采用了一种新的“房间打扫政策”,如果她读了张贴出来的告示(在她左方),就应该会明白这一切。所以酒店不会退款给她。

Now, obviously, she didn’t say but she did take this sign as a souvenir. This is what it read:
很显然,当时她无话可说,她之前只以为这个告示牌是个什么纪念品而已。上面是这么写的:
