Though the staff were nice on check in and check out, and apologetic for the problems, the Hotel La Rose has definitely seent its better days.
After reading prior reviews about noise, we specifically asked for a suite that did not front on the noisy side. I was assured that i would have a "back side king suite." When we arrived and checked in, we were given a suite on the front side of the building. Noise was not really an issue, we were told, because we were on the fourth floor and there are no windows. That's only half true, and in any event, not consistent with our original reservation. Suites on the fourth floor all face the same direction (so we were told), and have an interior sloped celing with these funky skylights. The closing mechanism was broken on two of the skylights in our room, and when the wind blew they rattled and banged all night. Because they kept blowing open, we were able to enjoy the noise and activity on the street.
Inside, the room was well worn and suffering from deferred maintenance -- what you would expect from a truck stop motel:
- as above, the windows didn't close
- the bed had only a mattress (no box spring) on a plywood base. The mattress felt like it was made from the same stone as the building's facade.
- the love seat in the room had an ill fitting slip cover. It needed it.
- the carpet and furnishings were well worn (out).
- there was no hot water.
Don't be deceived by what look like bargain rates. If you want a bargain motel, stay at one. If you want a luxury hotel, stay at one -- not this place.
