First and foremost, a hotel is a place that provides a place to sleep when you are away from home. Unfortunately, my one night at the Mikado Hotel was marred by an unwelcome wakeup call at 6:30am.
While checking in, I was told I would need to move my car from the hotel parking lot by 7am the following morning, as it was to be resurfaced. I told them I would never have made a reservation at a hotel where I would be forced to get up and move my car so early the next day. They offered a wakeup call. I declined, and told them I would park on the street, because I had a late night planned and didn't want to be awakened early. No matter, the call came at 6:30am.
When I checked out later that morning, I noticed that the hotel parking lot had NOT been resurfaced, so there had been no need to call me even if I had chosen to park in their lot! The front desk said they were sorry, but didn't seem overly apologetic.
Other than that, the hotel seemed average and clean. The room was a bit drab, but serviceable. Of course, my lack of sleep may have colored my recollection.
