The woman who checked me in was very pleasant and professional. The man who seemed to be the manager and was overseeing the morning breakfast also seemed quite professional and was taking his responsibilities seriously.
However, competent staff can't change the fact that this is a shabby, run-down hotel. It was impossible to darken the room at night because of the strong outdoor fluorescent lights. I suspect that lighting is necessary as a crime deterrent. Unfortunately the dry-rotted curtains didn't close enough to keep the light out.
There was an empty plastic beverage bottle of some kind behind one of the night stands but other than that, and a dead stink bug on the windowsill, the room was pretty clean.
The linens and toiletries were all of the lowest possible quality.
There is a coffee maker in the room, which I hadn't realized beforehand.
Seems like the kind of place that would have bedbugs, but there weren't any so I'm thankful for that.More
