I am writing this review while still here at this hotel. Our decision was based on economy and location as well as the positive reviews we read on line. In a word... Terrible.
The rooms are marginally clean. The beds (yes, we were in three) were all gritty. The bathrooms seemed clean but there were things in them you would have expected housekeeping to watch for. These ranged from clumps of hair. To toothpicks on the vanity. The first room was just over. All dirty and smelled funky. The second room was right next to the laundry shoot and it was used from 8 am on. That and housekeeping didn't believe the "do not disturb" sign on the door and banged repeatedly at 815 am to make sure we didn't
want to be disturbed.. The third (and thankfully the last as we a leaving tomorrow) now has a screaming child next door. The staff would love to help but can't as the hotel is completely sold out. I don't it. Hotwire labeled this as a three star. It BARELY scratches two. If you need a place to stay as a last resort and you have exhausted all options (including the YMCA) stay here.
