We had booked a one-night stay at this hotel via an online booking site, and had booked a room with two king beds and a sofa bed. The room we were given did not have the sofa bed, so we asked for a cot. Room service called us back to say that the fire marshals had been there recently and that they preferred not to give out cots.
Since we were short one sleeping spot, we asked to be moved to another room with a pull out couch. They said they could upgrade us and we would get a mini-fridge. Hello?!? How is a mini-fridge going to help another person sleep??
I insisted on getting another room, and after much discussion, they said they would give us a suite for an extra $10. It's not a big increase - it's only $10 - but you'd think after all the problems we had that they'd just give us the upgrade for free. Anyways, we were tired and just wanted to sleep, so we took the room.
The room was nice, large, plenty of room (and we now had a mini-fridge!) The mattress on the sofa bed was hideous though - you could feel the springs in it! It looked like it had been there since the hotel opened.
We also had a hassle getting extra pillows and blankets...
To add to it all, there's an odour in the hotel that makes the place feel old. It smells like an old church basement or an ex-smokers house. Gross!
Location is on the outskirts of town, so if you're looking for nightlife or things to do, this is not the place to go. However, if you're trying to avoid traffic and just want a place to crash, and you don't mind odours or bad service, you can get away with a night here for a decent price.
Breakfast in the morning, along with friendly service, helped boost this hotel's score from a 1 to a 2...
