I booked that hotel as a quick stop on the way to somewhere else and was just as well because I really could not leave fast enough. I believe my experience was not shared by all guests so do take my comments with a grain of salt. The room I was in was in a bad state of repair and requires a full overhaul. For one thing, the AC unit is so filthy it is actually sticky and visibly dirty inside. The smell of decades of cigarette smoke is pervasive and although the room is labelled as no smoking, it reeks of stale smoke. Perhaps luckily, the outside smoking area is right outside the door so the smell of fresh smoke often wafted in through the porous windows and covered up the mildew scent. Some half-hearted attempts at renovation were undertaken piecemeal, but it is obvious a rank amateur tried, and failed to learn on the job.
Everything about the room needs to be refreshed, from the chipped paint that covers the rug and windows too, to the bathroom floor which was recently installed on top of the mouldings. The shower surround is so rotten, it is actually perforated in places.
All is not lost, however. The service was good and friendly and although a physical train wreck, the room was as clean as humanly possible, a feat I certainly appreciated and the only reason why I stayed. The front desk lady cheerfully came out to open the door for me since the new lock would not willingly accept its key without a fight. I was allowed to keep my motorcycle on the lawn right outside the room door, a kindness I also appreciated greatly. The breakfast area was clean, fresh and inviting and the food was acceptable and plentiful. Other guests I spoke with were very happy with their rooms, so it could be that I was in the older part of the hotel that has not yet been worked over properly. The tidy exterior and well kept common areas lead me to believe I may have gotten the bad apple. Stay away from room 109!
