Got a last minute search for a holiday weekend hotel, bad idea as I know better. Anyway located a hotel with a "suite" breakfast 2* rating and a 80% customer satification rating and for a rate of $68.00 plus fees at Hwire so I went for it!
After the name was revealed I began to feel that sick in the stomach, you've been burnt feeling as I began to read all of the not so nice things reviews which were found on Tripadvisor for this hotel.
I called the hotel and requested a two bed suite and spoke with the lady of the hour receptionist noted on the prior reviews. I informed her that perhaps I would have better luck than the guest whom all were not impressed and would never return again. Perhaps I was given a better room I cannot say for sure, but I felt better after speaking with her.
The "suite" was a suite because they had a loveseat in the "sectioned" room as it was equipped with an ordinary small refrigerator and small microwave. NO stove or kitchen sink in this "suite". Just a rectangular table with one standard chair a coffee table in front of the loveseat , and of course the two queen beds and a night stand in between the beds were noted. That's it! Nothing to brag and boast about plain cherry colored closet and 42 inch LG flat screen tv a good number of channels on the menu to choose from with free internet.
Free breakfast as it should have been was very basic and not stocked well as I noticed more attention given to knives, spoons and utensils than to actually having food on hand even as the kitchen attendee watched and observed how much food was consumed by the guests, I got the impression that she was withholding food and would adjust the amount presented, especially if it were a family with children. Again the food was nothing to brag on.
The swimming pool was small and right off of the dining area. You are within walking distance from a Wendy's and Bob Evans restaurant. Would I hesitate to patrionize this hotel again, yes for the price noted only and less. I have stayed at better and a lot worse.
