We stayed at the BPL for two nights in early August because we were attending a wedding reception there on one evening. We were very warmly greeted by two bellhops (one named Aaron, I can't remember the other fellow) and check-in was quick and pleasant. The lobby is lovely and we were expecting our room (#313) to be equally so.
Another reviewer described it as "long in the tooth", which is accurate. The decor of both room and hallway may have been pleasant twenty years back, but I'm doubtful (green and pink with a wallpaper border....yeesh). The towels were literally threadbare - very much so - and furniture was dated. Very nice balcony with a mountain view, but no chairs to sit on :-/
Cleanliness was an issue. Carpets were dirdidn't appear to be vaccuumed, someone's dirty sock was left under the bench, the bathroom smelled as though it had been mopped with dirty mop water and glasses in the bathroom had a noticeable film on them. We're not very fancy travelers, but hope for cleanliness to be the bare minimum.
On the bright side, the lounge off the lobby was really nice and had excellent service, we had a fabulous concierge help us with breakfast recommendations and a few other questions,food at the wedding was really excellent and it's a very short walk to the busy main street. If not for these silver linings, I couldn't have even given the average rating that I have.
