We ended up here after finding that the Comfort Inn was full and after passing on the Days Inn down the street (see review), which was unbelievably filthy.
At a AAA rate of $47.50 per night we spent two nights here in a spacious king room, which included a sofa, fridge, and microwave. The room was nicely furnished and featured a TV with full cable, including HBO. Those were the pluses.
There were some negatives, mostly having to do with housekeeping and maintenance:
The refrigerator was off when we checked in and the tray below the freezer .was filled with stagnant, orange, moldy water. We emptied it ourselves and turned on the fridge, which worked fine.
The AC worked but needed cleaning as it pumped out moldy/mildewy air.
The bathtub was extremely dirty, which could have been remedied by some Bon Ami and 15 minutes worth of effort on the part of the housekeeper. There was a booger -- yes, booger! -- on the bathroom door.
The management, in an act of penny-pinching to save on water costs, had cut down the toilet fill tube so that the toilet would only fill to a low level, well below the fill line on the tank, only about halfway up. This meant, of course, that it lacked the oomph to flush properly, which led to a late-night backup. Ms. Maven had to roust the manager at 12:45 a.m., who asked her if she would like to plunge it. She said no, and the manager unhappily had to come and correct a situation of his own devising.
When we checked in, the desk clerk warned us that the breakfast was pretty bad, and she was right: There were donut holes, a couple of off-brand cereals, and bagels without cream cheese. The only spread was something yellow from Wal-Mart that was 60% vegetable oil. One morning there were no cups for coffee; the breakfast area was obviously an afterthought and not adequately maintained.
We would not stay here again unless everything else was full and the only choice was this or the Days Inn.
