I stayed at this hotel because everywhere else was booked for the day that I needed to be Urbana. THis was one of the biggest mistakes I have ever made.
1)When checking into the hotel, the clerk initially gave me the keycard for the wrong room. My daughter, who I was traveling with, dubbed the clerk as creepy...and he was. As I was walking down to my room, he yelled out to me and told me that he gave me the wrong room. He then gave me the key card to the right room. THis was the beginning of the bad experience.
2)When we got into the room, we saw how spartan this room was. A bare brick wall. A TV hanging off this wall with the cable box hanging off the top of the TV by the coax cord connected to it. THe locker room style washroom. It was a disaster.
3)I tried to turn on the TV, but all I got was the cable box was not authorized. I was traveling with my daughter and she said she didn't want that creepy clerk coming into our room to fix the TV and besides, she had homework to do, so we just went with no TV.
4)No clock, no radio nothing much in the room. Not even a bible. I guess even the Gideon's I guess dont want to be there.
5)THe chair in the room seemed like an old chair that someone rescued from the curb on Garbage day. An old upholstered chair. I would not even think about sitting in it.
6)Later in the night, my daughter decided that she would take a shower and go to bed. WHen she went into the shower, we found a)a used washrag stuffed into the soap holder and b)a used bar of soap under the washrag. If it wasn't late (after 10:30 PM) and if I knew other places in the area were all booked up (thats why I ended up here) I would have left right then, but we decided to stick it out for the night.
7)When my daughter was getting ready for bed, she pulled down the sheets and found them stained. We then stripped both beds in the room and pulled a couple of blankets we had in my car out of the car and used them to sleep with.
8)THe rooms are not soundproof. I was awakened by the couple next door at 3 AM when they returned to their room. I was then assaulted by the sounds of them having sex. No soundproofing on the walls and the loudness of their actions made a wonderful night.
Like I said, this was a disaster from the start and if I didn't need somewhere to stay that night, I would have left there. WHen I checked out in the morning, I informed the woman at the front desk about my complaints, and she offered me a discount the next time I would stay....like I would ever think about staying there again. I suggest anyone who is thinking of staying at this place...DON'T
