The fan had dust so thick that on the medium setting, it started to fly off the guard.
An old air freshener (that was long past its prime) was up in the light fixture over the mirror.
The shower curtain, while it looked new, was way too big for the shower stall opening. Not only that, but there were 12 holes from which to hang the curtain, but only 5 rings to hold it on the curtain rod.
The toilet seat had obvious pits in it. The toilet paper dispenser was hanging crooked on the wall.
The shower head assembly had started coming off the shower stall wall.
There was only one towel hook in the room.
I strongly suspect that there is a plumbing problem in the facility as a whole because there was a grinding sort of sound whenever water was turned off and back on in other rooms. In fact, there was a sound or noise when the shower water was turned on in Shower #4.
