This is probably the third or fourth time I've stayed at this Holiday Inn. It's one of only a handful of conveniently located hotels in downtown Dartmouth, but they've got some work to do. On my most recent stay I entered the room and found the carpet under the vanity sink soaking wet. In the bathroom there was a huge yellow stain on the wallpaper around the toilet. The room itself was fine, and even though there was a wedding going on it was relatively quiet.
This Holiday Inn's 'business center' is abysmal. The computer is running 10 year old, insecure software and maintains a non-reliable internet connection. All of that could be upgraded by someone in a matter of an hour.
But the real kickers: a requested 4:30AM wakeup call didn't arrive. That's the first time that's ever happened to me, and it doesn't take a lot of imagination to see how this could be a disaster.
Finally, I woke up with the tell-tale triple bite from a bedbug on my arm. The worst thing you can expect to discover in a hotel or motel these days.
A manager needs to wake up and take the helm on this place. They have thoughtful and courteous (but sloppy) staff. It serves a great need and could be a perfectly fine Dartmouth hotel (they need more of them), but it's time for them to clean up their act.
