Rather disappointed about my stay here. First of all, they do not have parking or valet, so you are on your own in trying to figure out parking. This is problematic due to the fact they have a short driveway and there were a lot of cars parked there with no one directing or helping people load and unload their luggage. When I asked for a luggage cart to help us out, I was told that they only have three and they all went missing and do not know where they went.
Checked into my room. We booked a King Suite, since I had my family with me. The carpet was filthy. My 13-month old son, who just learned to walk, had his feet and socks turned black from the dirt in the carpet. Also, the suite is really two rooms with that were joined by a door. One room was kept as a bedroom and the other was converted into a living room. Normally this would not be a problem, but the doors that joined the room had no way of being opened from the other side, if closed. One morning, shortly after waking up (so the chain was bolted to the door of the bedroom), I walked into the living room to help my wife with something. My son, being 13-months, closed the door joining the rooms and we couldn't get back inside. When I tried to get help from hotel staff, they either didn't speak English or they moved at the speed of molasses. Eventually, I was able to free my son from the room by releasing the bolt using a plastic knife. 30 minutes after I did this, security finally came to help.
Lastly, while packing up to leave I looked under the sofa for my son's toys that might've fallen underneath it. What did I find? A used condom! It wasn't even far underneath the couch, it was near the front where my son could've easily reached for.
Needless to say, I will never stay at this hotel nor recommend it to anyone else.
