We visit this area quite often. Due to several events in the area, our usual hotel was booked as were most others. Because we were with a group we received what we thought was a good rate...after staying here I would have to say it was not worth it.
Pros: Quick check-in
Close to amenities...food, shopping, sports venues etc.
Pillows are decent
CONS: No signage at turn in..easy to miss
Front desk staff minimally nice..Not rude per say but certainly not welcoming
Small breakfast area.. an after thought just stuck in the lobby
Food was cold, fruit was rotten, pastries were stale. Two mornings in a row..so I tend to think this was the norm. By 8:50 the person working the breakfast area was rushing to put stuff up while quests were still trying to get food...seemed annoyed with everyone. (Breakfast is served till 9)
Halls all smell strongly of smoke.
Two people were actually smoking in the elevator as we rode down with them.
Halls are all dirty. One piece of paper laid in the hallway for three days. I watched house keeping walk over it everyday.
Elevator is also filthy. Trash, dirt, and food all over the floor. Again never touched the three days we were there.
Room smelled of smoke and mildew. Plus some type of chemical..apparently trying to cover the smoke smell
Horrible cover over a nice white comforter.. just stick with the white comfort..it looks nice and it feel soft. Not like the sandpaper you hide it under!
Cookies under the bed.....and what I hope was just a brownie all over the floor.
Air system very loud...sounded like a siren revving up.
The hotel just generally did not seem secure. Our door was very difficult to get locked and others in our group had the same problem. Wouldn't feel safe here by myself
And the worse part..the outlets in the room..my husband was shocked while trying to shave. Fire hazard for certain
The list goes on and on.......we won't be back....even if ever other hotel is booked..we will drive to the next town and commute to the venue...
