I have many recurring dreams and most of the time I look forward to continuing where I left of last time, but there is this one I just cant decipher.
I am always in a bit of a run down hotel with small elevator and it always looks like it smells bad. There is a pool area and most of the dreams start there and end with me trying to get back to my room or getting lost in the hallways. Sometimes others are packing and getting ready to leave, but I cant because I cant find my room and sometimes there is a sort of presence that guides me from door to door. The key numbers are strangely vivid and either 2 or 6.
Can anyone help me? I really want to stop having this dream, I always wake up exhausted and more tired than I was when I went to bed. I am truly hopeless.

It sounds like something in your life feels like you've lost your way, and you feel like so many others are on their right track but you're not. Something in the general sense is out of sorts -- you don't feel like you're where you need to be, and it's not only separated you from where you feel like you need to be right now, but that it has also somehow disconnected you from your home, your past, your foundation.
There is no guarantee one can get rid of a reoccurring dream.
I feel when we have dreams that repeat that this shows a theme. Current life themes frequently pop up for me, as well as dreams I have found to be more karmic in nature. It isn't unusual for me to dream of themes I have discovered related to meditative imagery of past lives.
That said I feel writing the dream down and processing through the emotions brought forth by it can really help perhaps release its hold on you.
Honestly if the dream is not to occur again it may stop on its own. I have dreams that re-occur often. I have had dreams that we're frightening of cemeteries since I was seven or eight. These still happen from time to time.
They still bring forth strange emotions bordering on fear, yet I will recognize that the theme has occurred before, and I am better able to process it.
